You can deck your halls with boughs of holly, evergreen and mistletoe.
This "kissing plant" can be found locally throughout the hills and hollers of West Virginia. Look up and see if you can find this green plant high up in the bare treetops.
It may be a romantic plant, but it is also a parasitic plant that attaches itself to the branches of trees. Most of the time it is spread through bird droppings. Be careful, the plant and the berries can be poisonous when ingested. I would take off the berries if I had pets or little ones running about the house.
How do you get the illusive bunches of mistletoe from the tops of trees. Well, you could shoot them down.
Sometimes, my son, Andrew, likes to do that.
I didn't make a 'kissing ball,' but I did hang a sprig of it above a doorway in the house.
Everyone needs a kiss every now and then, don't you agree?
