Corelle Profile: Holly Days (1984)
Available from 1984 to 1986, Holly Days is Corelle's first Christmas themed pattern. It seems that it first appeared on store shelves in 1985, but it could be purchased from a mail-order catalogue in 1984. It is a three-coloured design in green, red and black, and bowls & saucers are decorated with a single green band.
Different types of sets were offered, a 16-piece set being most typical. Each place setting included: dinner plate, side plate, soup/cereal bowl, mug. In a 20-piece set were: dinner plate, side plate, dessert bowl, cup & saucer. A 12-piece set was comprised of dinner plates and cups & saucers.
Mugs are opal Pyrex, and cups generally are the small extra-white Pyrex type, borrowed from the Livingware 2 product line. Round-bottom Pyrex cups also exist in this pattern.

Glassware was made for Holly Days with an authentic looking design. One style, by an unidentified maker, has a straight-sided shape, slightly narrower at the bottom, with a thick heavy base. It seems that the usual manufacturers of chrome-top accessories did not produce any obvious Holly Days look-alikes.
