Cardinals refer to the members of the sacred college of Roman Catholic Church, which selects pope. However, the term Christmas Cardinals is often associated with some more elements of Christmas .|
Christmas is a colorful festival. Even if it happens in the dread cold of December, when snow turns every thing white, the evergreen Christmas trees herald spring.
Green and Red are supposed to be the most significant colors of Christmas and hence, Hollies and Santa’s red suit are also associated with Christmas Cardinals. Hollies are plants with glossy, spiny-edged leaves and red berries. The red suit of Santa Claus comes from the fact that Catholic bishops and cardinals in Italy wear red.
Christmas Cardinals also include red birds. There are many such cardinal figurines available in the market. These are also used as toppings for Christmas cakes. So, Christmas Cardinals are all about Christianity.
