In pagan times, Holly with its bold berries was thought to represent the male and Ivy the female (although they were mistaken as holly berries actually form on the female plant). An old tradition says which ever one was brought into the house first, would tell whether the man or woman of the house would rule that year!! Although it was unlucky to bring either into a house before Christmas Eve.
