The best thing about celebrating Christmas (for those of you who celebrate) are the traditions. Some family traditions involve decorating the Christmas tree with family. Other traditions may involve having a particular dish that’s exclusively made for the holidays. What’s Christmas without grandma’s famous egg nog? There’s also traditions people either love or dread around this time of the year. Depending on what your views are, people may like to bring out the seemingly harmless sprig of green with a cluster of white berries known as mistletoe.
Wherever this tradition of kissing under the mistletoe came from, it has been a source of delight and dread for most people. Maybe you need an excuse to kiss that office cutie you had your eye on for months because, you know, tradition dictates you must kiss under the mistletoe when you find yourselves under it. Or you’ll do anything to avoid being caught under it with that guy at the coffee shop who means well but is a bit of a creeper every time you get your morning java fix. To celebrate this Christmas week, I thought it’d be fun to list some of the fictional characters I wouldn’t mind being caught under the mistletoe with in no real order of favorites.
