Regarding the origin of the Christmas decoration: I heard that there was a germanic tradition of hanging the intestines (sp) of enemies on trees around the village. But never saw a source for that. Could anyone comment on this?

Better description needed[edit]

The article as it stands just says that a garland is "a decoration". That's too vague; it needs a more specific description to distinguish a garland from other types of decorations. Dugwiki 21:24, 5 December 2006 (UTC)

Garlands in India[edit]

This article is disappointingly short. Isn't there a section on garlands and garlanding in India? It's a huge part of Indian society at weddings, and as a way of honoring notable people like politicians. Can't someone add this? --Mezaco (talk) 04:14, 5 September 2008 (UTC)

La Belle Dame sans Merci[edit]

I can add a hyperlink if you wish, but what happened in 1914? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 205.232.191.16 (talk) 19:11, 6 June 2011 (UTC)
