Happy National Mistletoe Day!

berriesAs all mistletoe enthusiasts should know, today,  1st December, is National Mistletoe Day, first announced way back in 2005.  That was when it was put forward, after representations by myself and other members of the original Tenbury English Mistletoe Enterprise team, in an Early Day Motion in the UK Parliament.

It was never taken any further than that at parliamentary level, so perhaps has no formal status. But no-one actually objected, so that was good enough for us.  And 17 MPs signed it.  Which isn’t too shabby.

No Mistletoe Day is complete without mistletoe.  If you want your own supply in future years you need a Mistletoe Grow-Kit!  Available from the English Mistletoe Shop website at englishmistletoeshop.co.uk
