Holly is a character in Oracle of Seasons.[1]


Holly resides in her House in the Woods of Winter. To access the Snake's Remains, Link must acquire a Shovel from her.

The door to Holly's House is blocked by snow. To enter the House, Link must climb a platform and enter via the chimney. Upon entering, the startled Holly first confuses Link for Santa.[2] She then demands that he clear the snow from her walkway, allowing him to keep the Shovel when he is finished.[3]


  • It is only ever possible to enter Holly's House during the Winter.
  • In the British English version of the game, Holly mistakes Link for a chimney sweep instead of Santa.[4]


Holly is named after the Holly tree.[5]
