Hollies & Berries Ornament and fun Folklore
I'm just diverting away form Halloween for a moment to share my newest ornament. I am always fascinated to discover why we use certain symbols for decorating through the holidays. The folklore of Holly and Berries is wonderful. A symbol of rebirth used for protection against: naughty faeries, bad weather and lightning. It is considered very good luck to bring Holly & Berries into your home for the Holidays. If you choose the thorny type which is consider male or the smooth type considered female this determines who will rule the home in the coming year husband or wife. I think mine is smooth I didn't add thorny points. Hollies & Berries are here if you'd like to take a peek.
