There’s nothing quite like a festively decorated front door at Christmas. Gorgeous holly and ivy wreaths always look spectacular with their mix of red, gold and green. In pagan times holly, ivy and mistletoe were used to ward off evil spirits and celebrate Winter Solstice. The onset of Christianity borrowed these fertile symbols and holly was used to represent a crown of thorns, while Ivy was a reminder to cling to God in times of trouble.
