Mistletoe has been in folklore and mythology since the 13th century. In mythology, it stood for the devine male essence. Then when Christianity came to Europe, both the mythological and Christian meanings were mixed. This is where the practice of a couple standing under the mistletoe around Christmas time had to kiss. The very first time this happened, which is documented, was the 16th century.
This is the last of the Mistletoe Accessory Set. It looks so lovely with the mistletoe on the front and the back. Of course, the red background sets it off.
