So we got a notice in our box to come help decorate the church for Christmas. It asked us to bring, “holly, ivy and evergreen fronds.”
Uncle B says, “did you notice what’s missing?”
And I’m, like, “no.”
And he says, “mistletoe.”
Mistletoe: not welcome in the Church of England. It was a big Druid thing, so the church is not cool with it.
Except York Minster, where the Dean hangs a sprig of mistletoe above the altar on noon, Christmas Eve.
