This evergreen plant reminds us all year long about the immortality of nature.
The Holly moon was called Tinne, pronounced chihnn-uh, by the Celts, who knew the potent Holly was a symbol of masculine energy and firmness.
The ancients used the wood of the Holly in the construction of weapons, but also in protective magic.
It is said if you hang a sprig of Holly in your house you ensure good luck and safety to your family.
You can also wear Holly as a charm, or make Holly Water by soaking leaves overnight in spring water under a full moon
The Holly water can then be used as a blessing to sprinkle on people or around the house for protection and cleansing.
