Mistletoe for Christmas

Posted Dec 07 2010 4:47pm

We will soon be bringing mistletoe into the house for Christmas, just like the Druids in 100 A.D!

Druids thought that Mistletoe was miraculous:

  • curing diseases
  • protecting people from witches
  • improving fertility

At the end of the year,  Priests would cut mistletoe from the trees and give it to people to hang in their houses to ward off evil spirits.

The tradition continues, bringing mistletoe into the house at the end of the year, but now to celebrate Christmas!
