Since medieval times people have sung carols using holly and ivy as a metaphor for Jesus and Mary. Holly is often called "Christ's thorn," and early Christian writers wrote often of the symbolism of holly and ivy representing Jesus and the Virgin Mary. The famous Christmas carol we know, though it was written down in the 19th century, has roots a thousand years back in England.
This throw pillow celebrates that tradition, and adds a dash of holiday cheer to your couch, while bringing music in as well - it's sure to delight musicians as well as history enthusiasts who will recognize the holly decorations as being traditional Tudor holiday decor.
Remember that everything you buy is a purchase with a purpose, as I split 10% of profits between the local historic society in my hometown of Lancaster PA, and funding microloans to women refugee entrepreneurs through Kiva.
