Under the mistletoe dating search
Traditions involving mistletoe date back to ancient times.
Mistletoe was widely used centuries before Christ as a religious symbol in pagan rituals.
Mistletoe berries are poisonous and should definitely not be ingested.
So you could translate Mistletoe as 'poo on a stick'!!! Mistletoe was also hung on the old English decoration the Kissing Bough.
The plant can only thrive if its seeds are carried to a host tree by birds that have eaten the mistletoe berries.
The plant feeds off the host tree by stealing all the water and soil minerals which is why the mistletoe retains its vibrant green colour all through winter. There are approximately 1300 species of the plant, and some of them have red, pink or transparent berries.
Yet another tradition instructed the merrymakers to pluck a single berry from the mistletoe with each kiss, and to stop smooching once they were all gone.
Mistletoe is one of the most magical, mysterious and sacred plants of European folklore and has long been a symbol of love, peace and goodwill.
