A Victorian Christmas Wreath starts the Victorian party at Your Front Door

Nothing makes a home look more welcoming and inviting than a beautiful Victorian Christmas wreath!

Wreaths were  used by the Romans to celebrate victory. However  they became part of a deep Christian tradition as well.

There were often four candles on the wreath, and it was seen as an Advent wreath: the four candles representing the weeks of Advent and the candle in the middle representing Christ.

And although we don’t always know it, wreaths offer much to their pagan roots with the evergreen of the forest representing life. For instance Father Christmas is often shown wearing a wreath.

Thomas Kinkade Victorian Christmas Wreaths

Here are four Thomas Kinkade Victorian Christmas wreaths. Each Victorian Christmas wreath shows Kinkade’s love of Victorian England: the snow covered city, the horse sleigh’s the magic of Christmas time. All of these wreaths are gorgeous pieces of art, and they all light up. They are quality made, sure to be heirlooms in your family.

The perfect Victorian Christmas Time

I can imagine the perfect Victorian Christmas. First of all, there would be the exchange of presents. In addition, the children would play at Christmas crafts. Probably their favorite would be  opening their crackers.    Furthermore the family would spend some time together enjoying each other, and maybe saying grace. Finally  there would be the fabulous Christmas feast.

Last  of all the family would join together and put together a puzzle.

Victorians could put together jigsaw puzzles, although they would not look like the Thomas Kinkade Victorian Christmas Jigsaw Puzzles. The earliest jigssaw puzzles were wooden, and usually of maps. It is likely that only the wealthy and perhaps the royalty would have the puzzles.

But when families could get them, they would. Because the time putting together jigsaw puzzles – like these Thomas Kinkade Victorian Christmas Jigsaw Puzzles makes a beautiful family time.
