It Must Have been the Mistletoe!

-A A +A
By Vince Luecke

Parasitic woodland plant found in treetops has intrigued humankind for millennia

Ancient Druids judged the sprigs of greenery to be sacred gifts and wonders of the earth. During of the Middle Ages, families rich and poor gathered it from forests and hung balls of it from ceilings and barn doors. Far closer to our own times, Barbra Streisand sang about the plant's impact on us, crediting it for stoking the fires of love. What plant can boast such a hallowed history? Mistletoe, of course. Or, as Streisand declared in her 2001 tune, "It must have been the mistletoe."
