What's the origin of the christmas wreath?

What’s the origin of the christmas wreath? It seems odd people would just start putting those on their front doors, is there any particular reason for christmas wreaths?

Hi Steve, In Germany, to teach the Christmas story of the Bible, they did “miracle plays”. They were plays to teach about the Garden of Eden and Adam and Eve. This took place yearly on Dec. 24. They would decorate evergreens with apples to represent the forbidden fruit. This is how Christmas got the name Christmas EVE and the colors red and green. All I could find about the wreath… Sue
