With Christmas two weeks away, it’s easy to think everyone already has a dose of the ‘Christmas Spirit’. However, it’s slightly hard with hardly any snow on the ground or no snow at all in some areas. There are places around town and the state that are here to offer the fresh, green smell of Christmas to your house with a wreath or garland, which can be great to enhance your holiday fever. Consider highlighting the outside doorway of your house with lights intertwined with a beautiful garland. Take your pick of smell, look and feel of a Douglas Fir, White Pine, Boxwood Balsam or Fraser Fir. I can never make up my mind on just one, so the I’d try to combine three or four garlands would work best for me so I get a mixture of fraser fri, white pine and cedar smell and look as I walk into my house.
Traditional Christmas wreaths are great symbols of holiday joy. The classic Christmas wreath is an option, but if you’re like me at all, maybe you’re a bit simply tired of a green wreath, with a red bow in the center. Ponder over a potential new tradition of Christmas wreath that creates a contrast of red berries on green fir, keeping the tradition of green and red as Christmas colors. Somehow blue, as well as multi-colored stringed, was added to the mix with icicle Christmas lights; traditionally speaking isn’t a Christmas color. Wreaths and garlands create a livelihood to Christmas when in most of America looks is grey or brown outside with no leaves on the trees. It also can be very difficult to get the fresh, pine smell, unless you live in the forest.
With both wreaths and garlands, you have the option of soft feel pines, with the White Pine choice; if you’re nostalgic of childhood days, find a scent that’ll revive an old Christmas memory. Goodness knows how much this season has unfortunately become a retail holiday, so try to spite that fact, in a nice way by keeping ’tis the season feelings’ around.
Not everyone wants snow for Christmas, so a Christmas wreath or garland can brighten up eyes for those friends in the South who simply love greenery around them during the holidays who like greenery, without white, surrounding them through the holidays. Whether you love the classic route or want to create a different route there’s a variety of wreaths and garlands available.
