25 Days of Christmas: Day 19- The Christmas Cardinal

Did you know that the Cardinal is associated with Christmas? It makes sense, the males are a bright shade of red that really stick out against the snow. (thanks to this website for the info)

The folklore about Cardinals being associated with Christmas is because of the red color of the males. Hanging a cardinal on your Christmas tree is suppose to bring good luck throughout the year. It is suppose to be a symbol of hope and the red symbolizes Christ's blood.
