Mistletoe has long been the trigger of awkward holiday encounters between unsuspecting people who get caught standing under the hanging bough. How did mistletoe become synonymous with Christmas kissing? The Druids started it. Mistletoe, a hemi-parasitic plant that grows on trees, was considered a cure-all with special properties. In the Aeneid, the hero brings a bough thought to be mistletoe to the underworld. But the earliest mention of mistletoe's romantic powers was by Roman natural historian Pliny the Elder, who scoffed at the Druids of the 1st Century A.D. for believing that "mistletoe, taken in drink, will impart fecundity to all animals that are barren." It wasn't until the 18th or 19th centuries that the British started hanging mistletoe as part of Christmas celebrations. In an 1820 story, Washington Irving described Christmas decorations that included "the mistletoe, with its white berries, hung up, to the imminent peril of all the pretty housemaids." In 1836‚s The Pickwick Papers, Charles Dickens paints a scene of mass sub-mistletoe kissing: Young women "screamed and struggled, and ran into corners, and did everything but leave the room, until∑ they all at once found it useless to resist any longer and submitted to be kissed with a good grace." Mistletoe was supposed to bring luck to two people who kissed underneath it and bad luck to those who didn't. Some say proper etiquette is to pick a berry off your mistletoe for every kiss and stop when all the berries are gone. Just don't eat them: Some species of mistletoe are poisonous.

Mistletoe is very rare in Ayrshire. In legend the Druids highly valued it and cut it with a gold sickle to preserve its potency and it was caught in a sheet as it lost its power if it touched the earth. It remains green in winter and it was thought that the energy of the tree resided in the mistletoe until spring.

Kissing under mistletoe at Christmas According to a custom of Christmas cheer, any two people who meet under a hanging of mistletoe are obliged to kiss. The custom is of Scandinavian origin. In Norse mythology, Baldr was a god of vegetation. His mother Frigga, prompted by a prophetic dream, made every plant, animal and inanimate object promise not to harm him. But Frigga overlooked the mistletoe plant — and the mischievous god Loki took advantage of this oversight, tricking the blind god Höðr into killing Baldr with a spear fashioned from mistletoe. Baldr's death brought winter into the world, until the gods restored him to life. Frigga declared the mistletoe sacred, ordering that from now on it should bring love rather than death into the world. Happily complying with Frigga's wishes, any two people passing under the plant from now on would celebrate Baldr's resurrection by kissing under the mistletoe. Medicinal use Available clinical evidence does not support claims of anti-cancer effect for mistletoe extract; quality of life and other outcomes measures have likewise shown no or weak improvement in rigorous trials. Mistletoe leaves and young twigs are used by herbalists, and it is popular in Europe, especially in Germany, for treating circulatory and respiratory system problems.An old Christian tradition said that mistletoe was once a tree and furnished the wood of the Cross. After the Crucifixion, the plant shriveled and became dwarfed to a parasitic vine. In Romanian traditions, mistletoe (vâsc in Romanian) is considered a source of good fortune. The medical and the supposed magical properties of the plant are still used, especially in rural areas. A popular myth says that mistletoe was cut with a gold sickle and it lost its power if it fell and touched the ground. This is a confusion with the Holly 'holy' Tree, the most sacred tree of the druids (after the Oak) due to both plants being green all year, having colorful fruits and sharing similar history of winter months. Getafix, the druid in the Asterix comics, was often seen up trees collecting mistletoe for his magic potion. Mistletoe is commonly used as a Christmas decoration, though such use was rarely alluded to until the 18th century.Viscum album is used in Europe whereas Phoradendron serotinum is used in North America. According to custom, the mistletoe must not touch the ground between its cutting and its removal as the last of Christmas greens at Candlemas; it may remain hanging through the year, often to preserve the house from lightning or fire, until it was replaced the following Christmas Eve.. The tradition has spread throughout the English-speaking world but is largely unknown in the rest of Europe. The appearance and nature of the fruit's content (viscin) is very similar to or suggestive of human semen and this has strengthened its pagan connections.Mistletoe (Phoradendron flavescens) is the state floral emblem for the state of Oklahoma. The state did not have an official flower, leaving mistletoe as the assumed state flower until the Oklahoma Rose was designated as such in 2004. # State floral emblem: Mistletoe # State flower: Oklahoma Rose Oklahoma is the 28th most populous and 20th-largest state. The state's name is derived from the Choctaw words okla and humma, meaning "red people", and is known informally by its nickname, The Sooner State. Formed by the combination of Oklahoma Territory and Indian Territory on November 16, 1907, Oklahoma was the 46th state to enter the union. Its residents are known as Oklahomans, and its capital and largest city is Oklahoma City.Part of the Bible Belt, widespread belief in evangelical Christianity makes it one of the most politically conservative states, though Oklahoma has more voters registered with the Democratic Party than with any other party.

Before Christianity, in Northern Europe, there was the Sun god Baldur. Why do we still hang mistletoe at Christmas? It is a holdover from pre-christian Germanic Paganism. Why do we kiss under the mistletoe? It is to comfort Frigga, the queen of heaven who has lost her favorite son to the mindless violence of ignorance.
