Presented by Tracey Akehurst on Monday 28th November 2016 at Lowdham WI Hall commencing at 7:30pm.
Deck the halls with boughs of holly. Kiss your neighbours under the mistletoe. Keep the Yule log burning and decorate the Christmas Tree! Of all the seasonal celebrations Christmas has more traditional plants, with their accompanying legends and symbolism, than any other. Drawing on both pagan and Christian traditions this talk looks at why we still continue to use such an abundance of greenery today.
