Is Kissing under Mistletoe Good Luck?

Have you ever wondered, “Why do we kiss under mistletoe?”, me too. There are so many different cultures that have used it for centuries for many different things. Mistletoe actually dates back thousands of years to the Greeks. The Greeks used mistletoe as a supplement to cure everything from menstrual cramps to epilepsy. In the 1st Century AD Celtic Druids, ancient people who lived in Ireland and Scotland, believed that mistletoe was a sacred plant because it bloomed all year around even in the winter. Since mistletoe could endure the freezing winter temperatures they fed it to people and animals as they believed it would restore fertility. The Celtics would eat the sacred plant as a part of the Ritual of Oak and Mistletoe, a ceremony the Romans thought was barbaric. In Norse mythology the God Odin’s, son Baldur was prophesied to an early death. Frigg, the Goddess of love and Baldur’s mother, went to all living beings including plants in the mortal world to cast a spell so Baldur could not be harmed by anything. But Frigg forgot to cast a spell on mistletoe. The scheming God, Loki, created an arrow out of mistletoe and killed Baldur. In some versions of this myth, the Gods were able to resurrect Baldur. Frigg then declared mistletoe a symbol of love and kissed anyone who walked under mistletoe. Some historians think this myth helped create our more modern day tradition but some historians believe the myth and the tradition have no correlation. Throughout the middle ages mistletoe was still a symbol of fertility and vitality. By the 18th century it was ingrained into our Christmas traditions. Historians are not sure how mistletoe went from a sacred herb ingested for good fortune on fertility to a holiday tradition. But the tradition of kissing under the mistletoe was first documented in England around 1720 among servants before becoming a tradition within wealthier households. In some traditions you would kiss under the mistletoe until you could pluck all the berries off the sprig. Refusing to kiss under the mistletoe was a superstition associated with bad luck.
