Or maybe it’s not such a useless one! The practice of kissing under the mistletoe goes back to Norse mythology. Traditionally a berry should be plucked for every kiss and when the berries run out no more kisses can be claimed. A kissing ball of mistletoe was a popular household decoration in Britain in the 18th century and any girl standing underneath it could not refuse to be kissed but if she stood under it and remained unkissed it meant she would not be married in the next year.
