The custom of "kissing beneath the
mistletoe" Is so old that no one knows
when It originated; hut when young
people are found selecting the brunches
that hiive the berries on, It Is fair to
suppose that they know a kiss must
be given for each berry plucked and
that the ceremony Is never complete
nntll every berry Is off the branch.
There wns once a common, though
mistaken, belief that the mistletoe grew
on oak trees only, but that was so fnr
