If Football Players Get Athlete’s Foot, Do Astronauts Get Mistletoe?
I realized today that I haven’t seen any Mistletoe this year! Uh oh…is that a sign? No one wants to kiss me? Haha!
Anyway, it got me thinking, Why there is even that tradition of kissing under the mistletoe?
I found this in Wikipedia: “When Christianity became widespread in Europe after the third century AD, the religious or mystical respect for the mistletoe plant was integrated to an extent into the new religion. In some way that is not presently understood, this may have led to the widespread custom of kissing under the mistletoe plant during the Christmas season. The earliest documented case of kissing under the mistletoe dates from 16th century England, a custom that was apparently very popular at that time.”
