Why do we “deck the halls with boughs of holly” at Christmas? In this easy-to-present program, children discover that the spiky glossy leaves and bright red berries are more than just a festive decoration. They enact the early druids’ use of holly and its secular “roots,” then discover that holly really symbolizes Jesus Christ: the evergreen foliage reminds us that he is eternal, the prickly points stand for his crown of thorns and the crimson berries symbolize his shed blood. The drama culminates in children singing the classic carol “The Holly and the Ivy,” which beautifully highlights each part of the plant as it relates to Christianity. Includes instructions for creating a pine cone and holly wreath for a stunning backdrop. The audience receives ribbon-tied holly sprigs as a memento of the plant’s rich meaning. All will have a holy holly Christmas!
