It’s the holidays! And, PB LOVES this time of year. Starting tomorrow, holiday decorations will cover PB’s Polar Bowler 1st Frame lane! How festive!
PB’s love of all things ornamental got us thinking. What is the history of some of our favorite holiday decorations?
Beautiful, twinkling, illuminating. Lights are such a sign of the season. And, they’re important to many cultures and many holidays. The illumination they provide represents guidance, hope and miracles. Ancient worshippers of the Winter Solstice and today’s Candy Cane Laners know that lights warm the holidays.
According to the dictionary, a wreath is “a circular band of flowers, foliage, or any ornamental work, for adorning the head or for any decorative purpose.” From celebrating champions (think laurel wreaths in ancient Greece) to honoring our fallen, these decorations symbolize many different things and they’ve been around our homes for a very long time.
Decorating with trees has a long, long history – well before their adoption as Christmas-themed ornamentation, even. Ancient Egyptians filled their houses with palm rushes and the Vikings believed that evergreens belonged to the sun-god. As a sign of life throughout harsh winter, evergreens have decorated homes across the world for centuries.
Thanks to PB and his fun holiday decorations for inspiring this post! Don’t forget to play Polar Bowler 1st Frame on your favorite device starting tomorrow to bowl on PB’s holiday lane! It won’t last forever!
