In ancient times, people observed that mistletoe appeared on a branch or twig where birds had left droppings. “Mistel” is the Anglo-Saxon word for “dung,” and “tan” is the word for “twig”. So, mistletoe actually means “dung-on-a-twig”. What a strange meaning for a plant that is supposed to bring love and happiness!
