    History of Mistletoe Decoration and Tradition - NEW ON ATC

    Have a look at the newest article I posted on the main site:


    History of Mistletoe Decoration and Tradition

    Do you use Mistletoe in your decorating?

    I inherited an OLD fake mistletoe ball from my aunt, I put it up EVERY YEAR - always in a doorway (that's what she did, I keep the tradition!)

    We also have an artificial mistletoe ball. Its been in our family for about 15 years. We chose this method due to the fact that mistletoe is dangerous for young children and animals. Still love all the beautiful meaning behind it.

    Yes, I have two artificial mistletoe balls and occasionally I will purchase a dried mistletoe sprig

    That's very interesting. I haven't seen much mistletoe at Christmas in recent years.

    That's sad. A tradition on it's way out...
    The holly's up, the house is all bright, The tree is ready, the candles alight; Rejoice and be glad, all children tonight.
