When I was a child we hung mistletoe from the beams in the utility room of my parents house (it's the first room you walk into). The tradition being that you have to kiss someone if you're both stood under the mistletoe. A great little excuse for a smooch!
We've got a clump growing here, so I decided to put a sprig above the door in the hope of extra kisses and to pass the tradition on to my children. I'm sure it goes back a long way in history and will carry on a bit longer here yet, where I grew up is also the last place in the UK to have a mistletoe market for the Christmas trade.
Bloggers around the world - do you have this tradition? Or if it doesn't grow where you live do you have something similar?
