Legend of the Mistletoe

The origins of kissing💋 under the mistletoe, a plant that often bears white berries, are often traced to a tale from Norse mythology about the god Baldur. … In many sharings, Frigg declares the mistletoe to be a symbol of love after her son’s death and promises to kiss anyone who passes underneath it.

kissing under the mistletoe is everywhere in pop culture. Standing under the green plant with the white berries being the time for a smooch — existed long before it ever appeared in movies and pop songs.

In other “traditions”, not necessarily history, a young lady caught under the mistletoe could not refuse to give a kiss. This was supposed to increase her chances of marriage, since a girl who wasn’t kissed could still be single the next Christmas. According to ancient custom, after each kiss, one berry is removed until they are all gone.

CELEBRATE LOVE ❤️

Whether we believe the legends of standing under a ball of mistletoe, brightly trimmed with evergreens, ribbons, and ornaments. Whether we believe the mistletoe’s legends or not, it always makes for fun and frolic hanging in a doorway at Christmas celebrations.

Have you ever been kissed under the mistletoe? It’s often used as a tool to encourage happy couples to show affection or to give budding romances a nudge in the right direction.

What I like to do is ask or be asked,  “Would you want to kiss me even if we weren’t under the mistletoe?”. That way I get to find out if they’re actually interested in me or just adhering to a Christmas tradition.

And if they say no…
