Hanging garland as a holiday tradition in America was brought to us from Europe by the early settler, Garland was made following the fall harvest. The making and selling of Holiday Garlands brought extra income, enough to help purchase clothes, when there was nothing else to do after harvest. Materials such as spruce, pine and cedar could be found in nearby woods to produce it.
