The evergreen holly has long been a symbol of eternal life.
The Druids believed the holly or ilex was sacred, believing it stayed green year round because it was favored by the sun.
Christian legend says one winter night, the holly miraculously grew leaves out of season in order to hide the Holy Family from Herod's soldiers. Since then it has been considered a token of Christ's gratitude.
