When it comes to Christmas decor, the inclusion of certain decoration items is a must. Like a fully decorated Christmas tree, a fireplace decorated with stockings and fairy lights and the front of your house decorated with bright lights. This year, try adding some oomph with these great Christmas wall decor ideas.

The Colors of Christmas

Various colors are associated with Christmas and they all represent something. Let’s find out what these color associations are.


Although most trees lose their green foliage during the winter season, Holly Ivey and Mistletoe are the evergreen ones. These trees remind people that spring would come back.

The Romans celebrated Saturnalia every December and during this ceremony, they would decorate their doors and walls with holly wreaths. This signified the return of summer and good luck.

In the 4th century, when the Christians began celebrating Christmas on the 25th of December, they would let the wreaths left behind by Romans hanging. That’s when the association between the color green and Christmas formed.


The Paradise Tree in the Garden of Eve is believed to be a pine tree with apples. They basically represent the fall of Adam.

Holly berries are also red in color and they are believed to represent the blood of Jesus.

Do you know why Santa’s robe is red? Well, that’s because a Bishop’s robes are of the same color. Besides this, St. Nicholas, the person from whom the Santa tradition originates, wore these robes too.


White is associated with peace and purity. It represents the fact that Christ is spotless and sinless. Also, the color of the snow is white.

That’s not all! In earlier times, paradise trees were decorated with white paper wafers. This represented the bread Christians ate during the Mass of Christian Communion.

Furthermore, most churches cover their altars with a white sheet.


The color ‘gold’ cannot be dissociated from the precious metal that bears it. However, in reference to Christmas, it holds a little more significance. Since you rarely find sunshine in the winter, gold is considered the color of warmth.

Moreover, gold represents royalty and wealth. So, the ones who could not afford gold-colored decoration items would substitute it with yellow.
