Mistletoe (Viscum album) is commonly used as a Christmas decoration. According to custom, the mistletoe must not touch the ground between its cutting and its removal as the last of Christmas greens at Candlemas; it may remain hanging through the year, often to preserve the house from lightning or fire, until it was replaced the following Christmas Eve.
According to ancient Christmas custom, a man and a woman who meet under a hanging of mistletoe were obliged to kiss. The custom may be of Scandinavian origin.


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.


So.... why dont wear them and make people kiss you! ;)


These earrings are 3 cm (1.17in) length, the tiles are approximately 1.3 X1.2cm (0.5X0.46 in). The tile design is on both sides.
