Merriment Under the Mistletoe!

by Jenny Bryde 21. December 2015 01:14

With Christmas and New Year's approaching, one little tradition has caught my eye and my curiosity.  I came across some adorable pictures of couples smooching under the mistletoe, and I think it makes a great pose for lots of photo ops: engagements, wedding, holiday, etc.  

I dug into this tradition a bit a History.com and undercovered some background on this pucker plant.  From what I gather from the article on History.com, mistletoe has long been associated with vitality and fertility.  Also, the tradition of kissing underneigh apparently stemmed from European servants when men were encouraged to steal a kiss from any woman caught standing under the mistletoe.  Refusing the kiss was considered bad luck.  This tradition makes me laugh as I feel many men caught trying to steal a kiss today might receive a punch in the nose...unless the woman was purposefully standing waiting for him.  

In the pictures below, the couples are certainly concentual!  Happy kissing, everyone!
