The Holidays are a time of garlands and wreaths filled with evergreen boughs and pine cones; it’s a tradition that dates back to ancient times. People feared the darkening, cold days of winter and would light fires and decorate their homes with evergreen boughs to bring back the light and warmer weather.
At the same time, they also noticed the pine, fir and spruce trees stayed green and preserved their fruits. As such, they became symbols of life, rebirth and re-generation—a precious connection to nature to punctuate our technology-centered world.
