Christmas & Crowns

Crowns and Christmas go together for plenty of Christian folks given the celebration is for the birth of a king.

Since crowns were historically associated with nobility and status, artists often depicted religious figures wearing them.

The bible is full of references about receiving a crown, especially in relation to longsuffering and battles won.

While we may not think of the Christmas wreath as a crown, it too is said to symbolize eternity, infinite love, and in the case of a holly wreath, Christ’s crown of thorns.

Christmas Symbols and Crowns

Perhaps traditional wreaths have endured as a symbol of Christmas because of the paradox.

Instead of a symbol representing wealth or even pain, a wreath is a life-giving reminder of how Perfect Love conquered death.

A wreath on a door may be an invitation for Jesus to enter or a sort of welcome to a triumphant Christmas spirit awaiting within.

Not So Serious Crowns

Crowns have a playful side too. Brits traditionally wear tissue ones at Christmas dinner since they come in those sweet Christmas crackers.

Children around the globe feel special donning crowns as well even before they understand the historical significance or implications.

Rediscover Crowns & Circular Symbols

Take a moment to gaze around your home this very moment. I bet there are lots of circular shapes in your surroundings you never think too deeply about.

Rings on your fingers, circular mirrors, and even a round dining table are these sources of subtle positive energy and reminders of an unending, infinite, flowing circle of love.

Wherever this post finds you, my hope is that you will look a little closer at the holiday trappings in your midst and recognize their historical significance and enduring symbolism.

While it’s true, Christmas bloomed into an enormous economic enterprise, there remain these sweetly humble historical pieces of it shimmering in plain sight, waiting for our attentive hearts.
