Holiday tapestries are a great way to welcome guests to your home during the festive season. Practical, washable, and colorful, tapestries and other home textiles are easy to display and care for. Tapestries make great holiday, housewarming, and party gifts.

There are so many variations of holiday tapestries, it's possible to decorate any space for virtually any holiday. Particularly around the mid-winter celebrations held in many societies around the world, there are a wealth of wonderful designs and symbols that invite guests to share in the joy of this time. Whether you're celebrating Thanksgiving, Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, Ramadan, or the Winter Solstice, there's a theme for everyone.

Winter symbols in appropriate colors are the most popular types of holiday tapestries. They're non-denominational and have many charming themes that relate to the season in Northern climates. Even in the Southern Hemisphere, which is sunny and warm this time of year, snowflakes, jolly snowmen and Santa Claus symbolize the happiness of the season. Thanksgiving themes are also a winner with people of many cultures. Although Thanksgiving is a non-religious holiday that originates in the United States and Canada, the idea has been slowly spreading around the world. Fall colors, falling leaves, and turkeys are charming and colorful. Celebrating one's blessings is a great idea no matter where you live.

Holiday tapestries are easy to use, too. You just hang them up. If you're already using tapestries for decoration, it's easy to swap them for holiday themes. Tapestries also add a note of cozy charm to a chilly time of year. Most tapestries are made of washable fibers, so keeping them clean is easy and they're simple to store--just roll them up.
