A-Z Challenge-H = Holly

I was going to add the word, Holiday, but we all know it’s my favorite Holiday which is why I am covering it for this challenge.

So, let’s learn a bit about Holly:

While Holly is a very, pretty plant and nice to decorate with, it also has a history of religious meaning.

In Scandinavia, Holly is known as Christ’s Thorn and some Christians believe the prickly leaves of Holly represent the Crown Of Thorns placed on the head of Jesus during the crucifixion and the berries represent the drops of blood caused by those thorns. An interesting way to think about Holly, next time you decorate.

And tomorrow is I. Not quite sure just where that will take me. Could be personal or might just be an cold subject.

  1. One Christmas eve in my early 20’s I got a cat. The only name I could come up with at 2 in the morning was-you guessed it Holly. She turned out to be a vindictive cat.
