Mistletoe is supposed to possess mystical powers which bring good luck to the household and wards off evil spirits. And it was also used as a sign of love and friendship in Norse mythology and that’s where the custom of kissing under Mistletoe comes from.

The custom of kissing under Mistletoe is English. The original custom was that a berry was picked from the sprig of Mistletoe before the person could be kissed and when all the berries had gone, there could be no more kissing!  Fortunately you don’t need to pick berries off this kissing heart mistletoe decoration so you are guaranteed many kisses and lots of luck if you display one :) Honest!
