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.

Sparkly crowns came into my world in a fresh way when my tiara-loving nieces became fixtures in my life. What a fun collection it has been my pleasure to help them build!

For me personally, there is just so much loveliness to embrace within the symbol of a crown.

The unending circle of perfect love, the hope that death will not have the final word, the victory of peace coming to a weary world, and the nobility of the human spirit.

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.

    Oh my gosh, so many pics and suggestions but frankly it’s too early for me to think about Christmas, although
    I like this time very much. But the reason I answer after some missed comments is to know how are YOU doing.
    Hope you and your family are all well. Here in Spain we go through the 2nd lockdown which is pretty much
    exhausting. Stay well dear friend, take care.

      So sorry to hear things are shut down and stressful in Spain. Take good care of yourself and know this will all pass. I’m doing okay and coping well with my illness. I don’t overdo anything anymore. A little housework, a little blogging, lots of piano playing, and lots of baking/cooking. Lots of unplugged time to not get overwhelmed by bad news and lots of meditation where Love waits in the silence.

        I do too much .I should rest my shoulder after OP but I try to distract myself with all the
        other things from this 2nd lockdown. Housework, cooking, reading and other stuff. I really have to learn to withdraw myself .Today, after a doctor’s consultation I started to ponder abouth my health and welbeing. It is necessary to calm down. Hence I startet with a nice lunch in the sun and continued the
        rest of the day slowy. Hard for me to do so because I am an active person.

          I think I understand as a kindred spirit. I feel as though I must be producing and crossing things off a list in order to be acceptable and good. But in a sense, that is being a slave to performance and not fully free. Sleeping in, for example, makes me feel like I’m a slacker rather than being responsible and loving towards my body and its need to heal. This pandemic pause helps us see the shadow side of our patterns of thinking and behaving, and I’m right there with you remembering to simply ‘be still and know.’ xox
