The Mistletoe and Holly Ornament, combines two ancient traditions into one contemporary creation. Mistletoe and holly both stay green through the winter and are natural symbols of life and rebirth during the darkest time of the year. The Druids used mistletoe in their mid-winter celebrations and in the middle ages people decorated their doors with holly for good luck. Over the centuries mistletoe and holly have evolved to be part of the holiday tradition.
