M … is for Mince Pies, Mistletoe and Merry Christmas

MistletoeThere are a lot of people who believe Christmas wouldn’t be Christmas without mince pies. Quite honestly, I don’t like them. But I know a lot of people who do. So if you want to make them yourself, take a look at this recipe I found on the BBC website.

Now I do like the tradition of hanging up mistletoe at Christmas and kissing under it! But I read that there is a proper etiquette that needs to be observed. The man is only allowed to kiss a woman or girl on the cheek. And when he does this, he has to remove a berry from the mistletoe sprig. The kissing ends when all the berries are gone!

You probably know this, but I thought I’d remind you … “Merry Christmas” is the greeting that is traditionally used on or before Christmas.
