Hanging wreaths on a door is one way to decorate, and these wreaths come in different sizes. Wreaths also have the option of being garnished with lights or ribbon. Another idea is wrapping a front door entirely in wrapping paper and taping it from the inside. Ribbons and other festivities add a unique touch to the wrapped door.
The Christmas tree symbolizes the spirit of the Christmas season and, to Christians, the everlasting life and sacrifice of Jesus Christ. In the Bible, the cross upon which Jesus was crucified is often referred to as a tree. The lights and decorations on the tree represent the wonder and glory associated with the birth and resurrection of Jesus.
The tradition of hanging Christmas stockings on Christmas dates back to the legend of St. Nicholas during the third century in Myra, Turkey. According to legend, filling stockings with gold was a way for St. Nicholas to give poor girls dowries.
