Your lucky you dont have to buy any for christmas you can be kissed as many time as you like any time lol. This was worshiped along with the oak tree by the Pagans and Druids, along with the holly as it bore fruit the berries for winter solice.

Morgana , I don't mean to be in any way rude but are you a fan of King Arthurs legends and his half sister Morgan .. ? just a thought as you seem to know a lot about Pagans , Druids etc.
I absolutely loved all those stories , I must buy and read them again .. .. :o)

Lol its not rude Amy but inquizative, yes I am, I live and believe in their way of the earth, also I do know there is such thing as magic, perhaps not in the way people think though, its mainly to do with connecting, what goes round comes round, also energy the mind can create in order to create ghosts poltigueast, to fore tell the future all from the third eye, our bodies are generators which we produce a power like electricity, some have more power in their body and mind than others, hence this is why footballers are not allowed to have sex just before a match as it takes their strenth. Jesus made a connection he drove the madness out of the mad man and drove it into the swine.

The mounds which the druids had which when the sun runs down into the centre of their mounds, stone henge, the sun is a power. The irish use to be all pagans they too have a pagan mound in Ireland. All of europe was of pagan belief when Rome was just a dot. Christmas decorations are pagan they bought the holly into the house to decorate the house as they seen the berry fruit , like I said about the oak and the mistletoe
