Learning about pine and evergreens with Gillespie Florists

Flowers by Gillespie Florists: Seasonal Pine

The historical significance of pine and evergreen in holiday decorations lies in their symbolism of resilience and enduring vitality, as they can endure severe freezing conditions.

The idea of evergreens symbolizing rebirth and renewal has deep historical roots across various cultures and beliefs, including Christianity, Paganism, Japanese traditions, Native American customs, Chinese culture, Hebrew beliefs, and ancient Egyptian rituals.

This symbolism holds particular importance during the holiday season and the transition to the New Year.
