Christmas Countdown...2011...The Christmas Wreath

I love Christmas .  What a fun and beautiful time of year. Sometimes I wonder about the origins of  our many  holiday traditions.  Just what does the wreath we hang every year symbolize? I consulted Google came up with this quote......
"The circle of a Christmas wreath is a never-ending ring, a reminder of the everlasting love from God"
That sounds lovely to me:-) With that in mind my Brother Bruce and I set off to see if we could find a Christmas Wreath or two....   Here are a few pictures of our adventures from a couple of weeks ago....
First stop was Bruce's favorite restaurant...."Bob Evans" in Dover DE....
Fueled up and ready to go..... 
I had searched on line for area Christmas events and came across a happening in Odessa DE.
It was their annual Christmas open house.  Folks were invited to come into town to enjoy their decorations, food and fun.  Some of the historic homes were open as well.  
I had never been to Odessa and I said jokingly to Bruce...."Bruce I have never been to Odessa before we could get lost.  Should we still go?"  With a smile on his face he replied "absolutely" So off we went into unknown territory:-)

Bruce found a wreath! 
......and another......




Kinda looks like a wreath:-) 


Bruce and I heard music in the distance. With camera's in hand we
 jogged several blocks only to find the "Fife and Drum Corp Band"
 (Bruce looks dashing there in the foreground:-)
 

 The wreath below is on Joe's parents back door.  Joe loves to decorate the house for them every year.
It has become his tradition, his gift to them....
Bruce and I had another great adventure together.  He is a very bright light in my life, a blessing.
We were able to find many Christmas wreaths and they were all wonderful.
When ever I see a wreath at Christmas I will thank God for his endless circle of love for us.
Merry Christmas Everyone!
Enjoy Your World:-)
