20th December: The holly bears the crown.

Holly is a tree with prickly leaves, which people often decorate their houses with at Christmas. There is even a carol about it, The Holly and the Ivy. Although a sprig of holly is sometimes put on top of a Christmas pudding, you better not eat it – it’s poisonous!

Because it’s so prickly, Arnold used tongs to put the holly on the tree!
