St. Marys resident Linda Burkholder adds a holiday bow to a nearly finished kissing ball made of evergreen tree branches. Burkholder and her husband sell the old-fashioned holiday decorations at their Ever Green & Ivy shop/tree farm on Lambert Road. A finished product topped with a bow and laden with lights is shown below. The decoration dates back to Victorian times. Centuries ago they served as mistletoes and came in all sizes.
