The beautiful red berries of the holly add a welcome splash of color during cold winter days, and its springtime flowers attract bees and butterflies. As an evergreen, the holly represents enduringness.
Holly is native to the United Kingdom, and is used to adorn joyful times of gathering during the Christmas season. Birds nest in the holly during winter—when other trees can’t offer warmth, and its spiked leaves provide natural protection. Holly symbolizes hope, prosperity, and happiness in the home.
The holly is perfect to celebrate December birthdays and Christmas joy. It can be given to symbolize enduring love and care, and also as a reminder that there is comfort and hope in every season of life.
