Holiday DIY: 3 Evergreen Gift Toppers

Evergreen symbolize the promise of Yule: life everlasting, rebirth and immortality. The Celts considered the evergreen sacred because it did not die from year to year, and therefore represented the Goddess who also never dies.
Another evergreen of protection, holly’s spiky bristles are believed to repel unwanted spirits. Newborn babies used to be sprinkled with ‘holly water’, water in which holly had been soaked, especially potent if left under a full moon overnight. Holly is sacred to Holle, the Germanic underworld goddess, and symbolizes everlasting life, goodwill and potent life energy.
