Christmas Day is just four weeks away; the lights are already twinkling in high streets across the country, and if you haven’t decorated your home and business for the festive season already, you’ll have to do so soon or risk looking like Mr Scrooge!
Although Christmas is celebrated in the depths of winter, when many flowers and plants have died away from the cold, plants and greenery play an important part in many festive traditions.
The Holly and the Ivy
It’s thought that pagans would bring in holly boughs and ivy to decorate their homes for midwinter festivities as symbols of the life which would gradually return in the spring. To Christians, the holly became a symbol of Jesus, as referenced in the popular carol “The Holly and the Ivy”, above.
Regardless of the symbolism, when almost everything is bleak and grey outside, it’s nice to have some greenery indoors!
O Christmas Tree
Mistletoe (and Wine)
