WHY MISTLETOE NEVER DECORATES A CHURCH Druids regarded religiously thIjetOf, which they call d' "All heal" and offered it on their altars They decorated for tlieirffestivab with all kinds of green plants. T iB i hurch adopted thiscuStom, but the mistletoe was purposely omitted by reason of ftsfiguring in pagan religious files. Another reason given is that in olden times its use was abandoned in church decorations berause it ^t the joung folks to reading the ni.rni ige %  • rv re, and holly wasubstituted io indicate ihe dark monotonv of ni .trim my and the many thorns -with winch it was besef.

WHY MISTLETOE NEVER
DECORATES A CHURCH
Druids regarded religiously th-
IjetOf, which they call d' "All
heal" and offered it on their altars
They decorated for tlieirffestivab
with all kinds of green plants.
T iB i hurch adopted thiscuStom,
but the mistletoe was purposely
omitted by reason of ftsfiguring in
pagan religious files.
Another reason given is that in
olden times its use was abandoned
in church decorations berause it
^t the joung folks to reading the
ni.rni ige rv re, and holly wa-
substituted io indicate ihe dark
monotonv of ni .trim my and the
