MISTLETOE

The Druids believed mistletoe fell from heaven and grew onto a tree that sprang from Earth. Mistletoe thus represented the joining of heaven and earth, and God's reconciliation with mankind. A kiss under the mistletoe symbolized acceptance and reconciliation.

CANDY CANES

Some scholars believe a confectioner developed candy canes to represent Jesus. The shape of the "J" was for Jesus or the shepherd's staff. The white color symbolized purity, while the red stripes indicated blood. Peppermint is similar to hyssop the Middle Eastern mint mentioned in the Bible.

OH DEER: "Rudolph" was actually created by Montgomery Ward in the late 1930's for a holiday promotion. The rest is history!
