Voted Best Florist In Rochester, New York
Christmas Flowers, Table Centerpieces and related décor offer so much wonderment and holiday splendor to the season! Rockcastle Florist sells top quality, farm fresh and same day delivery Christmas Centerpieces, Wreaths and gifts. Interestingly, Christmas Centerpieces, Wreaths and decorations are not only festive but they also have a deep symbolism surrounding the Christmas season.
One example is that the Christmas Wreath represents eternity. Understandable connection because due to its circular shape this symbolizes it has no beginning and no end. In addition, Christmas Wreaths are traditionally designed using evergreen leaves. The evergreen tree does not shed its leaves in the winter thus symbolizing eternal life.
The many 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 intentional 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 as the foundation, the priest 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.
