The Tradition of Boughs of Holly

Each Christmas age-old traditions are repeated, filling us with a sense of wonder and nostalgia. Some of these traditions, from songs and stories to customs and decor, date back centuries. In some cases, like with the use of holly to decorate, the meaning has changed over time. Prior to the Christmas traditions we associate with it today, holly was used in ancient Celtic, pagan, Roman and Druid ceremonies and mythology. With such rich traditions behind this unassuming plant, the floral experts at Norton’s Florist decided to spend some time discussing holly, its meaning and how to include it in your decorating as you prepare for the holidays this winter.  Read More about The Tradition of Boughs of Holly »
