Think of Christmas, and the colours red and green are best known for their association. But did you know they were first linked to a different holiday? Centuries ago, ancient Celtic people believed that holly plants brought beauty and good fortune during the winter solstice. Over time, the Celtic habit of putting up red and green holly transformed into hanging red and green decorations in general. And thus, the idea of decking the halls with merry colours became a passed down, well-known tradition across the world. Read on for ideas on how you can style your home with the traditional Christmas colours.
