Mistletoe is a semi-parasitic plant with forked branches, which grows on different species of trees, the most famous of which is the oak. But it also grows on apple and pear trees for example. The floral bouquets turn into white, sticky and poisonous berries in winter, which can be used to make glue.
Mistletoe, especially when it grew on an Oak tree, was the sacred plant of the Druids. It was cut on Litha day (summer solstice) or when the moon was 6 days old. A golden sickle was used to cut the plant, which should not touch the ground.
