Packaging My Gift To You: Celtic Triquetra Knot

Posted by Joe Spitz on Dec 30, 2012 9:31:00 AM

Triquetra KnotAs my gift to you, I present the Triquetra, the Celtic Trinity Knot.

Triquetra Knot Christmas TreeInterlacing pattern design within the endless knot dates back to the Roman Empire, where they were used as decorations on floor mosaics and architecture.  These knot design has been found in other historical civilizations, most notably traced to the Celts during the Iron Age, when the Celts became experts at making jewelry and other artisanal items.  There are many designs and some are quite sophisticated in their patterns.  The Triquetra has three corners, so was embraced by early Christians to represent the Father, Son and Holy Spirit.  Other religious groups have also identified with this three-cornered weave design to represent mind, body and spirit or peace, joy, and love. 

I hope you have a delightful holiday season filled with joy, peace, and love.  Like many Americans I boast some Quinn family heritage; since the Irish have been identified with the Celtic culture since 500BC, I share with you a photo of my lighted Triquetra Knot tree and this Irish blessing:

May love and laughter light your days,

and warm your heart and home.

May good and faithful friends be yours,

wherever you may roam.

May peace and plenty bless your world

with joy that long endures.

May all life's passing seasons

bring the best to you and yours!
