Real-life Christmas legends

Stealing a kiss under the mistletoe may not be as risqué as it once was, but it's still a time-honored tradition (what's its origin?). And while you may have seen mistletoe (see more photos) growing in your neighbor's yard (it's a parasitic plant that thrives in the branches of certain trees), the kissing kind that you buy in baggies at your local store likely comes from this part of the US.
