Musings From the Art Room
So upon returning home I immediately placed the greenery in my favorite pitcher. My kiddos were like Mom isn't that a Christmas thing? No....it's so pretty! So off to my i-pad I go and find this out:
We are all familiar with at least a portion of the mysterious mistletoe's story: namely, that a lot of kissing under the mistletoe has been going on for ages. Few, however, realize that mistletoe's botanical story earns it the classification of "parasite." Fewer still are privy to the convoluted history behind the tradition of kissing under the mistletoe. And its literary history is a forgotten footnote for all but the most scholarly.
What? That's right: as unromantic as it sounds, kissing under the mistletoe means embracing under a parasite.... OMG. I could have done without that knowledge it turns out! So, another week in the art room has come and gone. We are making amazing stuff guys. I'll be sharing more next week in this new series.....Musings from the Art Room. (clever no?)
