It's that time of year again and we are now taking orders for Christmas wreaths here at Birksen. You can order online or come into the shop and choose from the vast selection of designs and sizes on offer. Did you know the wreath is an invitation to the spirit of Christmas to enter the home and bring good luck, suggesting also that the Christmas spirit dwells within? No, neither did we! You can read more about the history of the wreath in this interesting article published in The New York Times http://www.nytimes.com/1988/12/25/nyregion/wreaths-carry-many-meanings-and-messages-into-christmas.html.
