Did You Know, Under the Mistletoe

A great way to stand out at your upcoming
Holiday Dinner Party, is to
speak up with some fun and interesting facts...
Did you know...
that Mistletoe has no roots yet remains green during these cold months of winter...
or that the ancient Celtics believed mistletoe to have magical healing powers and used it as an antidote for poison, infertility, and to ward of evil spirits. The plant was also seen as a symbol of peace, and it is said that among Romans, enemies who met under mistletoe would lay down their weapons and embrace.

Scandanavians associated the plant with Frigga, their goddess of love, and it may be from this that we derive the custom of kissing under the mistletoe.

Happy Holidays Readers!
I hope you have a festive Holiday Dinner Party Season filled with smooches and sweet salutations!
