Parsley has a deep symbolic connection with humanity since ancient times. Classical Greece was part of the victory wreath they prepared for athletic competitions, and the Romans included it in bridal sprays to ward off evil spirits. In medieval Europe, it was thought that it could only be successfully bred by pregnant women and witches. It was once considered a symbol of death and was used as a funeral plant. On the other hand, it serves as the spring symbol for the constant renewal of life on the plate of the Passover Seder.
