I wonder if that first Christmas there was any mistletoe growing wild by the stable where Jesus was born.
Probably not, but today's Christmas season has parties, homes, and offices decorated with Christmas trees, garland, and maybe a chunk-a-hunk-a-burnin-love-mistletoe in a doorway or two.
Each year in the Larson home we do hang our very own little plastic mistletoe in a doorway as part of our Christmas decorations though not much kissing goes on.. that I am aware of.
I don’t know much about Mistletoe except that if you wander under it with someone else you should kiss... RISKY BUSINESS for sure. So without further delay let me share a few 'risky mistletoe moments' from a Back Pew perspective.
With these images now implanted in your brains let me conclude the following mistletoe advice shared in the lyrics by Stephen Stills.
And if you can't be with the one you love, honey Love the one you're with!
Hmmm.. These sentiments seem like a 'progressive' paraphrase of Song of Solomon. Yikes!
With regards to mistletoe kiss and love they are NOT to be shared with just willy nilly.
BUT I DIGRESS!
Merry Christmas wishes.. and mistletoe kisses?.. from The Back Pew
