Holly


The evergreen holly symbolizes eternal life.  This shrub most noticeable features have long been associated with Jesus Christ.  The bright red berries represent the drops of blood He shed on the cross; their color also represented the burning love for God present in the hearts of the faithful.  The prickly leaves remind us of the crown of thorns the Roman soldiers placed on Jesus Christ's head.
