Wreaths have been around for thousands of years, they were used as a kind of symbol of mourning in old times, they were hung outside the doors to remember a death. During this time it was very difficult to find good wreaths, those that were available were very expensive, and wreaths at this time were typically hung outside of the house where they could be seen. In more recent times the wreath has become almost a status symbol, indicating wealth, prestige and family history. Nowadays wreaths are used to celebrate holidays, thanksgiving, or as decorations for a wedding, it can also be used as a reminder to remember a friend or loved one who is far away.
