Product Description
This is a 22 slide, highly animated, power point presentation on Holidays – Celebrating Christmas Traditions – Why Greenery? Each of the slides are editable so you can modify the slides and to the presentation as you need to.

Holly, Ivy and other greenery such as Mistletoe were originally used in pre-Christian times to help celebrate the Winter Solstice Festival and ward off evil spirits and to celebrate new growth. When Christianity came into Western Europe, some people wanted to keep the greenery, to give it Christian meanings but also to ban the use of it to decorate homes.

This presentation looks at individual plants that are used for greenery during the Christmas holiday season and explains their spiritual significance. It ends with a look at one of the mist significant greenery decorations in the United States, the laying of wreaths on each of the graves at Arlington National Cemetery.
