Christmas Countdown: 12 Wreaths For Hanging

Love it or hate it, the city is once again covered in holiday glitter and glamour. I've been searching all corners of Toronto for holiday exhibitionism, good or bad, and for each of the remaining 12 days until Christmas I'll be posting a different photo essay documenting the annual make-over. Today I feature wreaths.

Before I started collecting holiday photos about a week and a half ago, I had never paid much attention to the countless decorations adorning each block this time of year. I learned rather quickly that wreaths, by far and away, are the most common item for decoration (I'm not counting round tree ornaments or red bows, those are a little too generic). Wreathes are everywhere!
