$5.99 (up from $3.49 last year) is the price of a sprig of live mistletoe from Mistletoe.com. The site is one of the few U.S. shippers of the smooch-inducing plant. The company harvests the plant from white oak trees on farms and ranches throughout Oregon. Mistletoe bunches cling to the oaks, and removing them is said to improve the growth and the stability of the trees — which means all those holiday kisses are also showing the planet some love <3!
So smooch away my friends and HAPPY HOLIDAYS!
