Pagan cultures regarded the wreath as a symbol of rebirth after winter and used it as a symbol of importance and success to be worn on the heads of victorious athletes in the ancient Olympic Games or as crowns by Roman leaders.
In modern times, however, the wreath is used as a Christmas decoration and symbolises eternal life.
