They brought boughs of the plant into their homes during winter to provide a safe and warm place for the "little people" and woodland spirits who were believed to live in the branches. While in Rome, presents were sent and ex- changed among the .people with holly branches attached. This midwinter celebration, also known as the Yule, occurs on the shortest day of the year when the Sun moves into zero degrees Capricorn. From these beginning uses of holly, the plant became known as an herb of protection. Planted around the home it guards against lightening, poison and evil spirits. It Is used in Yule decorations in the home to pro- mote good luck and is carried or worn for the same reason pecially by men. as holly sidered a masculine hedera helix (araliaceaeL feminine good luck guarding against ne disaster.
