Holly at Christmas.

English folklaw says that we put holly up at Christmas because:

The white flower represents the Virgin Mary
The red berry the Blood of Christ
The evergreen leaves the eternal life.

And Jesus was the son of a carpenter, so there must have been loggers
even then.

Happy Christmas, Happy Holidays, Happy Midwinter Solstice.
