Bussey’s Florist

Christmas flowers, décor and wreaths offer so much beauty and holiday spirit to the season! Bussey’s Florist offers the very best in farm fresh and creative Christmas Centerpieces, Wreaths and flowers. Interestingly, Christmas Centerpieces, Wreaths and decorations are not only festive but they also have a deep symbolism surrounding the Christmas season.

For example, the Christmas Wreath represents eternity. This is because of its circular shape which signifies it has no beginning and no end.  In addition, Christmas Wreaths are traditionally made from evergreen leaves. The evergreen tree does not shed its leaves in the winter thus symbolizing eternal life.

The various colors of Christmas decorations have interesting meanings and are believed to date back to the 15th century. At that time in history in London, it was a custom that homes and parish churches display ivy, holly and other various natural decorations.  People felt that the heart-shaped leaves of ivy symbolized Jesus coming to earth and that holly provided protection against witches. Plus, its thorns and red berries represented the Crown of Thorns worn by Jesus at his crucifixion.

The purposeful selection of red, green and gold decorations is by design also. Gold is one of the first colors associated with Christmas. It symbolizes royalty as it was one of the three gifts of the Wise Men. Red symbolizes the blood of Jesus shed during crucifixion.

In 1839, a Lutheran priest came up with the idea to use a wagon wheel to symbolize the approach of Christmas. Using the wheel, he would use red and white candles to reflect the Advent season. In the Roman Catholic Church, the season of Advent is four Sundays in December each one taking on a different theme:

  • On the First Sunday, the church looks forward to the Second Coming of Christ.
  • On the Second Sunday, the church reviews the message that John the Baptist preached. His message was for Christians to “prepare the way of the Lord”.
  • On the Third Sunday, which is referred to as Gaudete Sunday, the theme is again surrounding the joy Christians have by the coming of the Saviour.
  • On the Fourth Sunday, the theme is about Mary and Joseph and how the events led up to the birth of Jesus.
