History of the Mistletoes
The Evaloution of the Christmas Tadition
Baldur, grandson of Norse god Thor, woke up one morning and believed that every animal and plant In the world wanted to kill him. His mother and wife comforted him but he still believed that all animals and plants wanted him dead. Baldur stayed in his room frightened. Until one day his mother and wife went out to ask every living thing to leave their son/husband in peace. They all agreed, when Baldur came out to celebrate his freedom from suffering, he felt a sharp pain in his chest...he had been stabbed by an arrow made from the wood of the Mistletoe plant. The Mistletoe was the one living thing that the mother and wife had not noticed. Baldur had died. Now the Mistletoe hangs over our doors to never forgot about poor Baldur and we kiss beneath to remember that his mother and wife have forgotten.
