Day 14: Christmas Art Calendar

This is for Day 14. Why exactly do we hang mistletoe and why do couples kiss underneath it? I have no idea. But according to Wikipedia, in cultures across pre-Christian Europe, mistletoe was seen as a representation of divine male essence (and thus romance, fertility and vitality), possibly due to a resemblance between the berries and semen. See? So who knew right? Strange how we got all these customs during Christmas. I can go on but wouldn’t you rather grab your special person and give that person a big smooch?
