Include the Symbolic Holly in Your Winter Decor

As the holidays approach, we begin to see signs of tradition everywhere we look. Part of the magic of Christmas is the nostalgia certain songs, images and decor can bring to mind. One of the most traditional aspects associated with Christmastime is the holly plant. This evergreen’s inclusion in winter celebrations is not a new idea; in fact, it dates back to ancient times and has been revered by many cultures as sacred or magical. Today we use it in much of our holiday decorating, and the floral experts at Conklyn’s Florist are here to show you why!  Read More about Include the Symbolic Holly in Your Winter Decor »
