Deck the Halls with Boughs of Holly, Fa la la la la, la la la la. Didn’t know I could sing, did you? Well, it can barely be called singing, but this time of year has me caroling every day. Actually, December is my birthday month and that is why my parents named me Carol, although the name Holly was a close contender. But I digress . . .
Holly berries are a great source of food for birds and other outdoor wildlife but are toxic to humans and pets, so it is best to keep real holly berries outside. However, the leaves make excellent wreaths and sprigs that last quite a while. Fa la la la la!
