Do you know What Color Christmas Has?
Traditionally, Christmas has several colors. The site uses red, green and
gold. But why do we have them and what do the colors represent? As a Christmas
Handmade Bells Supplier, share with you.
Most of the colors and their meanings come from the traditions and customs of Western Europe/Northern Europe. Christmas is in the middle of winter and it is dark and cold.

Evergreen plants such as Holly, Ivy and Mistletoe have been used to decorate and brighten buildings for thousands of years in the long dark winter. They also remind people that spring will come and winter will not last forever!
The Romans exchanged evergreen branches for good luck in January. Ancient Egyptians brought palm branches into houses during winter festivals.
In many parts of Europe in the Middle Ages, paradise shows were usually held on Christmas Eve. They tell biblical stories to people who cannot understand. The "paradise tree" in the Garden of Eden in the play is usually a pine tree with red apples tied to it.
Now, the most commonly used green for Christmas is the Christmas tree.
As mentioned above, in early Christmas, red is the apple on the paradise tree. They represent the fall of Adam in the play.
Red is also the color of holly berries, which is said to represent the blood of Jesus when he died on the cross.
Red is also the color of the bishop's robe. These could have been worn by St. Nicholas and then became Santa's uniform!
Gold is the color of sunlight and sunlight-both are very important in the dark winter. Both red and gold are the fire colors needed to keep warm.
Gold is also one of the gifts a wise man brought to the baby Jesus. Traditionally, it was used to indicate that the wise man followed the color of the stars.
Sometimes silver is used instead of gold. However, gold is a "warm" color.
White is often related to purity and peace in Western culture. The snow in winter is also very white!
Sometimes white paper crepes are used to decorate the paradise tree. Wafers represent the bread that Christians eat during the sacrament or mass, when Christians remember that Jesus died for them.
When the altar of the church is covered with a white cloth, most churches use white as the color of Christmas.
Blue is usually associated with Mary, the mother of Jesus. In the Middle Ages, blue dyes and paint were more expensive than gold! Therefore, only royal family members and very wealthy people can wear it. Mary is often painted blue to show that she is very important.
Blue can also represent the color of the sky and heaven.
