Of all the seasonal celebrations of the year, Christmas has more traditional plants with their accompanying legends and symbolism than any other season.

Holly, ivy, mistletoe, the poinsettia, rosemary, the Yule log, and the most popular and recognised of all - the Christmas tree - each has its own fascinating legend and history.

Many customs and traditions of the season are surrounded by an aura of mystery and magic.

Drawing from ancient Druid, Celtic, Norse and Roman civilisations, along with Christian beliefs, myths have been created in an effort to explain the unexplainable.

Decking the Halls explores the history of our popular Christmas plants and flowers during this most holy season.

Pencil drawings complement the text.

With so many customs and traditions during the Christmas season, we often do not pause to wonder and ponder about how and why they began.
