Since the earliest of times, mistletoe has been one of the most magical, mysterious and sacred plants in nature. The Celtic Druids searched for this plant at the top of the Great Oak trees on the sixth night of the moon. The ancients used mistletoe as an aphrodiasic and as protection against poison, having powers to bestow life and fertility.
Kissing under the mistletoe first appears associated with the Roman festival of Saturnalia, which begins on December 17th.
This tradition still remains today.
Still Life will be selling 4-inch sprigs, hand selected from fresh-picked mistletoe. Each sprig features a beautiful satin bow with twist tie for convenient hanging and comes individually bagged.
Stop by Still Life for more kisses this holiday season!
