In the Middle Ages mistletoe was hung from ceilings to ward off evil spirits. In Scandinavia, mistletoe was considered a plant of peace, under which enemies could declare a truce or spouses kissed and made up. For proper etiquette, a man plucks a berry when he kisses a woman and when the last berry is gone, there should be no more kissing.
