Wreaths are used since ages, examples are the ancient Rome and ancient Greece used wreaths as a headdress for the Olympic prizes, battle or military heroes, emperors and so on. It is also said that in ancient times, Romans used wreaths as a victory sign as well. Let us make a distinction here between different types of wreaths used in the past as we have some historical facts before us. In past the laurel wreaths were meant for athletes and the wreaths made of olive branches were used for military or battle heroes. The Christmas wreaths symbolize how life overcome the forces of winter. Wreaths are also used as symbol of welcome to all guests. Wreaths are mostly in circular shape without having the starting or ending point. Due to its unique design, these are considered as the symbol of faith and also represent the mercy and eternity of God during the Christmas Eve. Different colors used in wreath or the leaves represent different things. For instance, the evergreen leaves and branches in the wreath symbolize the everlasting life and the love of God. On the other hand, the green color also signifies the new life and hope and sometimes also peace.
In past, the Christmas wreaths were made of plants which were capable of maintaining their green shades throughout the entire year. Those wreaths were usually made of pine, holly and ivy. The purpose behind those wreaths was to show that the life is everlasting and the greenness of the leaves in the winter season truly symbolizes this fact.
Most of the people around the world relate the holiday wreaths to the Christmas wreaths. But in fact, there are certain other kinds of wreaths also. An important thing here to mention is that wreaths never have any special connection to any particular religion. This is a common thought of many of the people that wreaths are meant to be in connection with some specific religion. Nowadays, wreaths are made from plastic, artificial flowers and fresh flowers along with other leaves, berries and branches. Many people used them as a decoration on their doors, windows, fireplaces and even on tables.
These are now made almost the whole year and not confined to the winter season. No matter what is the purpose behind using these wreaths, they are surely a great way to express one feeling either by using it as a decoration or giving it as a gift on special events.

Greece is renown for its natural beauty and I am sure that no traveler that ever decides to visit Greece will leave the country disappointed.
Ancient Greece gave many things to the modern world including the foundations of mathematics and the sciences. Holidaymakers visiting the mainland or the islands will also discover that Greece continues to surprise and confound modern scientists and archaeologists with more recent findings. Tourists staying in Greece hotels can visit the capital, Athens to see some of the artefacts that have been recovered from the Dokos Shipwreck, the oldest known shipwreck in the world dating back past 2500BC. Due to its age many artefacts perished but divers did manage to recover many ceramic containers from the wreckage. The Antikythera wreck is probably the most fruitful discovery of them all and again most of the treasures were taken to Athens after being discovered. Among them were some excellent marbles and also priceless bronze statues like the Philosophers head. However the Antikythera mechanism is its best artefact. The mechanical device is as sophisticated as a mechanical watch made by the Swiss masters of early modernity and scientists believe it was an accurate way of mapping celestial bodies for navigating the oceans or some similar purpose. Holidaymakers visiting Crete, the largest Greek island can see artefacts recovered from La Therese, a French Navy vessel that sank late in the 17th century after an on board explosion. The largest Greek island has a very long history so holidaymakers have a good choice of cultural visits, beaches and inland hikes to choose from. The ruins of the Royal Palace at Knosos are interesting and should precede a trip to the Irakleio museum where holidaymakers can learn more about the ancient Minoans through their artefacts and the other wonders they built on the island. Bodrum hotels on Turkey’s Aegean coast are also popular for holidaymakers who enjoy the Greek islands as they are often close to or on the coast and have excellent views of both Kos and Rhodes. Holidaymakers staying in Bodrum have a pick of excellent beaches to choose from and can visit the historical old city for a memorable excursion looking through artefacts left behind by the ancients. The imposing Castle of St John is Bodrum’s most popular visitor attraction and houses a wonderful maritime museum full of artefacts of all shapes and sizes that have been salvaged from the Aegean and Mediterranean seabeds. The artefacts include glassware dating back to the first century BC and ceramics from the same and later periods. The museums most interesting collections are the shipwrecks, some of which are Bronze Age. There are also Byzantine shipwrecks in the museum’s Glass shipwreck hall. For holidaymakers that want to have a look at the ceramics and other vessels that were used to transport foods and liquids the Amphora exhibit is a very comprehensive collection. The Castle of St John is a very good if slightly unexpected treat for holidaymakers staying in Bodrum and Gumbet hotels.
The Guardian newspaper has learned of Greeces plans to sell or offer long-term leases on some of its beautiful and highly popular islands, reports property website House Sales Greece (). This remarkable decision which could see some of the most unusual property sales in Greece and indeed Europe is an attempt by the country to repay its sizeable debts. It is thought that (unsurprisingly given the scale of the purchase) wealthy property investors are likely to be the target market.
In a move never even previously considered by its government, Greece has decided to put some of its 6,000 picturesque islands up for sale or long-term lease to anyone that can afford what are sure to be hefty price tags. Its not just Greek properties on the islands that will bear a for sale or for rent sign – whole areas of some islands will be for sale or rent to the right buyer. The Guardian has found that an area of Mykonos which is one-third owned by the government will be put up for sale to a real estate investor who can not only afford the price of the sale itself but who is also willing and able to invest cash into developing a new luxury tourist complex on the island.
Wealthy purchasers and property investors from Russia and China are also looking to buy Greek property on the island of Rhodes, according to the article. These are two of the BRIC nations; along with Brazil and India, Russia and China have been highlighted as emerging economies with an ever-increasing class of the super-rich. It is these high-net worth individuals and property investors that are being targeted to buy property in Greece and its islands to help fill the countrys empty coffers. It is thought that Roman Abramovich, the billionaire owner of Chelsea football club, could be one of the more famous investors considering purchasing a slice of a Greek island.
Meanwhile, mere mortals have not turned their back on property in Greece. While the dire economic situation of the country has seen an increase in the number of people needing to sell property in Greece, there is still interest from people wanting to buy Greek property, particularly bargain hunters looking to exploit the market.

There is no doubt that Greece is one of the most beautiful countries in the world. -The Jewel of Mediterranean- ,as it has been previously called has the tenth longest coastline in the world at 14,880 km (9,246 mi) in length, featuring an enormous number of islands (approximately 1400, of which only 227 are inhabited). Millions of tourists visit Greece every year(mostly during the summer months) and leave the country with many wonderful memories that are hard to forget. I am convinced that any traveler that has visited Greece will surely tell you about the natural beauty of the country and about its rich cultural background. Most travelers visit the Greek Islands because they combine all the assets mentioned above plus they have wonderful beaches where the traveler can enjoy swimming.
There are many ways that a traveler can access the Greek islands. He can either go there by air(most major Greek Islands have airports) or by sea. Although the idea of traveling by plane can be rather tempting and comfortable it can also be rather expensive. Moreover another good idea is taking a cruise to the Greek islands however it can also be rather expensive and does not give you the freedom to explore the Greek islands by yourself. In my opinion the most enjoyable way to travel through Greek islands is by ferry. Traveling by ferry is most suitable for the kind of traveler that loves the sea and considers ferries as part of his holiday. These people are the lucky ones who can treat a long ferry journey as a fun thing to do, rather than a business traveler who just wants to get to his destination as quick as possible.
The ferries in Greece are modern, fast and comfortable.
No matter in which way you decide to visit Greece and regardless of the time of the year Greece surely give you some unforgettable experiences…
