Yule will suit me fine - celebrating the turn of the year with feasting, wassailing and holly and ivy etc. 

If you look at the words of The Holly and the Ivy, you can see how the Church was putting religious symbolism onto the old traditions.

Ours are tucked up snuggly somewhere - think they're under the neighbour's hedge.

What can cause confusion is that some female holly varieties have male names e.g. Golden King is a female and Silver Queen is a male.
