What is the "Hanging of the Greens?"

Many churches hold a service of preparation for Christ's coming, which includes hanging greenery traditionally associated with everlasting life. Greens such as cedar for royalty, fir and pine boughs for everlasting life, holly symbolizing Jesus' death and ivy representing the resurrection are used.

The General Board of Discipleship offers an alternative "Hanging of the Greens" service."
