Sprigs tfaeti tn Churches Supposed to Bring Good Ltick — Mistletoe of tlie — Why Itttlly fiei-rlea Are Holly belotigs to that evefgreeto flofa antedates the glacial period ifa this northern hemisphere. It is a plant •which possesses vigor euough to stand its ancestral habits, rather than conform io the deciduous customs of a newer generation which owes its prosperity to its time serving propensity. It is one of the genus ilex, some of Which, like members of the "ancient regime" of France, have adopted plebeian habits and have begun to shed their leaves an- tmally. No less than 160 species make tip the genus, and only a minority now inhabit what is at present called the tempe*ate zone. The majority are found in the tropical tegious of Asia and America, Europe possesses one sole, survivor of that inioceuo flora which resembled the forms now met with in Asiatic and South American forests. This is the well known European holly. The United States of America has at least ten representatives, six of which have conformed to the deciduous habits of recent times. Only one of these, however, concerns us now, and that one is called the American holly. The European holly is Ilex aquifolium; tho American holly is Ilex opaca. Doubtless it was the former of these which was invested with the right to preside over the decorations of the Christmas feast, but that honor has rightfully been transferred on this side of the Atlantic to the latter form, although the leaves of opaca are not so glossy, nor its berries so brilliantly scarlet, as those of its sister plant. The use of holly in Christmas decoration is of great antiquity, and probably is merely a continuation of the Roman customs^ of pre-Christmas times, for it was held by Rome in such esteem that wreaths of holly were used as symbols of congratulation at weddings. The ancient Teutons also hung up branches of evergreens—-of which holly was the commonest—in their houses, as places of shelter for the sylvan spirits during the cold weather. It was natural, therefore, that when Christians began to decorate home and church for their religious festivals they should use tho plants they had been accustomed to in other days. It was in this way doubtless that certain plants became associated with certain seasons. Holly and ivy apparently were accepted without reservation, and their use became universal, and now a celebration of Christmas without one or both of these would be an anomaly. Some plants do not seem to have been accepted with equal favor. There is the "baleful" mistletoe, provocative of the dangerous habit' of kissing, which the doctors are trying to break up by disclosing what terrible microbes are com- munisable in the operation. To quote the historian of Christmas at Bracebridge Hall: "On reaching the church porch we found the parson rebuking the gray headed sexton for having used mistletoe among the greens with which the church was decorated.: It was, he observed, an unholy plant, profane by having been used by the Druids in their mystic ceremonies, and though it might be innocently employed in the festive ornamenting of halls and kitchens, yet it had been deemed by the fathers of the church as unhallowed and totally unfit for sacred purposes. So tenacious"was he pn this point that the poor sexton was obliged to strip down a great part of the humble trophies of his taste before the parson would consent to enter upon the service of the day,'' So the mistletoe, sacred among the Druids, is rejected, but ivy, sacred to Bacchus, is accepted. Holly which has ,beeu used for the decoration of churches is highly valued in Worcestershire and Herefordshire, and a small piece with its scarlet berries is treasured because it is supposed to bring good luck for the ensuing year. In Rutland, another English county, they say it is unlucky to bring any holly at all into the house before Christmas eve. Some varieties of European holly are much more prickly thaii f others. The smpoth are called "she liolly" and the prickly <( he holly," According as one or other predominated in the decoration, say the wise in such matter, so the wife by Jinsband will rule the bouse during the year. A careful selection by the Irosband might be beneficial, but then again he might be circumvented as the mail was at the well of St, Keyne in Cornwall, The evergreen habit of the liolly has given, point to a Scotch, proverb which deflneg an"in-yeterate Jiay as one ''whp only tells Jees when the holiin is green," Ancl why are the berries red?
