Hanging a wreath on the door

During the Roman rule, the emperor persecuted people who practiced other religions and celebrations, including Christmas. In this season, the Romans celebrated the Festival of Saturnia, their own religious holiday. During this festival of the Roman god Saturn, traditionally a holly wreath was given as a gift. As a hidden message to other Christians in the region, Christians would hang these wreaths on doors to signal that Christmas was being celebrated in their homes.

  1. Yes, I had heard about this before. I have not hung a wreath on my door. However, right now going through a difficult bout of anxiety I feel like hanging a wreath on my door with a Do Not Disturb sign in the middle until I can get a hold of myself again.
