And my favourite-est ever (sigh):
Ahhhh..... I heart them so much. Honestly, it's an addiction. I can't stop listening to them. Luckily, I don't have to.
On that note (pun only marginally intended), I'm going to sit back and listen to beautiful music, and probably do some Beta Reading.
Have a great Thursday all!
A bush of evergreens sometimes substituted for mistletoe at Christmas.
- Thomas Wright's Dictionary of Obsolete and Provincial English, 1857
The old "kissing bunch" is still hung in some of the old-fashioned cottage houses of Derbyshire and Cornwall - two wooden hoops, one passing through the other, decked with evergreen, in the centre of which is hung a "crown" of rosy apples and a sprig of mistletoe. This is hung from the central beam of the living-room, and underneath it is much kissing an romping. Later on, the carol singers stand beneath it and sing God Rest Ye, Merry Gentlemen.
