“Did You Know” Christmas Edition – December 8

Did you know…

Mistletoe was once used by young girls to help find out if they would have a happy marriage with a particular man.

This was a custom in England where young girls would take a mistletoe leaf and put it under their pillows at night. They would then try to dream about a particular boy or man they wanted to marry someday. In the morning, they would burn the leaf. If it crackle while it burned, that was said to mean they would have an unhappy marriage with the one they dreamed about. If it burned without crackling, they would supposedly have a happy marriage with that person, if they were to wed them.
