Enjou's Christmas Wreath and its Historical Importance:

Enjou's Christmas Wreath and its Historical Importance:The wreath has become a holiday tradition, but where did it all begin? There are a number of reasons and cultural practices surrounding this symbol, but one of the first was used in ancient Greece and Rome. The use of a wreath as a personal adornment began with Apollo, Zeus' son and the god of light, as a symbol of his unrequited love for a nymph. He wore the wreath as a symobolic reminder of his desires. The wreath is also used as an advent tradition, initially to teach children of the meaning and purpose of Christmas. However here at Enjou Chocolat, we made a completely edible chocolate wreath filled with delicious foiled chcolate ornaments. Once you eat the candy from the inside, the chocolate wreath-box becomes the candy itself! Thanks for reading and have a Very Merry Christmas!
