Mistletoe

This is the only piece of Christmas decor we have.

Why is it a thing to kiss underneath mistletoe?
According to the Internet, mistletoe was valued for its healing properties in many ancient cultures. "The plant's romantic undertones most likely started with the Celtic Druids of the 1st century A.D. Because mistletoe could blossom even during the frozen winter, the Druids came to view it as a sacred symbol of vivacity, and they administered it to humans and animals alike in the hope of restoring fertility."
Apparently, there's a story in Norse mythology that also contributed to the folklore surrounding this cheery, little plant, but you're gonna have to go look it up. I'm keeping this short and sweet.


Why is there mistletoe hung outside our door?
Because Meg and I decided it will come in handy when we go on dates with the guys we like. ;) 
And it will definitely provide a lot of laughs. In fact, it already has...hehe
I'm pretty proud of us. We MADE that - from Babybel cheese wax, and weeds, and twine. Yeah...we're super crafty. And for some reason, my creative juices flow really well when I'm under pressure. #crunchtime #procrastination
Hopefully the greenery doesn't die before the weekend...
