Fresh, healthy, 8-in. MISTLETOE sprigs are for sale, grown on our own UCC grounds! In the forest, mistletoe is a bit of a scourge, a parasitic plant that latches on to trees and feeds off of them. But at Christmas, it becomes a symbol of romance. So where did the tradition of kissing beneath the mistletoe come from? The plant’s association with romance dates back to ancient Norse mythology. Frigga was the Norse goddess of fertility, motherhood, and the household, and the possible namesake of Friday. She declared mistletoe to be the plant of romance, requiring a kiss to all who pass under it. According to the tradition, it’s bad luck
to refuse a kiss beneath the mistletoe.
They will be available on Sunday, Dec. 20 during our Holiday Sae. $5 for each freshly packaged sprig, with proceeds to the church.
