Evergreens 🎄


Rose Mary:
Symbol of friendship & remembrance.
Said to have become scented when Christ’s swaddling cloths were hung over it.

Holly Leaves:
Represent Christ’s crown of thorns and berries the drops of blood.
Guards against the evil eyes.

To protect against the effects of drunkenness,
symbol of fertility.

stands for peace, protections & love,
old custom is to kiss under a sprig, picking a berry each time until all are gone
