Holiday fun with Mistletoe

As promised here is some more holiday fun with Mistletoe. I had help with this one from the National Wildlife Federation: Ancient Anglo-Saxons noticed that mistletoe often grows where birds leave droppings, which is how mistletoe got its name: In Anglo-Saxon, “mistel” means “dung” and “tan” means “twig,” hence, “dung-on-a-twig.” So, now you know how this plant got its name. You can be the judge of whether knowing the true meaning of "Mistletoe" makes it a less than desirable part of your holiday decorations. My advice: just keep it a secret! #DoctorBot #LakeKirby
