Do You Hang Mistletoe?

Hanging mistletoe never was my tradition, but I'm all for taking it up. Although, sometimes I think it would make more sense to just hang it at holiday parties, or before first dates. . .

I'm from an area that has mistletoe growing in abundance. It's a parasite that that kills treas and is poisonous to humans. not something i want in my house.

I want to, but I've always heard and read that the berries are very poisonous to pets. On one website, they call this plant the "Kiss of Death" to pets. So be careful if you hang it and have pets! This is the only reason that I don't do it, I have two cats.

Always, it's a great Celtic tradition but I think it's connotations with love comes from a Scandinavian myth. The ancient Druids used it in their rituals as a symbol of fertility and all that is sacred.

I would hang it if it weren't poisonous! I have too many pets that love chewing plants to risk it. And the fake stuff just isn't the same...
