Mistletoe may send you scurrying or, if you have your eye on someone, you may be waiting for an opportunity beneath its snow-white berries. But before reading some mistletoe jokes, let’s first understand the tradition. The long-standing tradition weaves together the mythology and biology of this fascinating plant. Mistletoe grows in over 1,000 different species all over the world. Indeed, the plant’s unusual growth habits captivated the ancient Europeans, who included it in their legends and myths.
Pliny the Elder described in ancient Rome how the Druid priesthood in old England believed mistletoe was a plant dropped from heaven by the gods, which explained its unusual position among the high branches of certain trees. They also thought it had healing and fertility powers. British colonists arriving in the New World in the 17th century discovered a different but very similar-looking species of mistletoe. They used it to tell stories of magic, fertility, and love, bringing the mistletoe hanging tradition from Europe to America. By the 18th century, this had become a Christmas tradition in the United Kingdom.
