The Christmas season brings fun
to a special girl or boy.
But, there’s another tradition
for adults to enjoy.
Hanging of the mistletoe
comes this time of year.
It’s a good way for us
to spread joyous holiday cheer.
With the mistletoe over your head,
don’t let the opportunity be missed.
There’s no better time or place
to grab your partner and be kissed.
The kiss brings good luck
to last all year long.
Helping to enhance the holiday spirit,
keeping good feelings growing strong.
How does the magic get released
from this little piece of holly?
No one seems to care,
as long as it makes us jolly.
This type of affection
is great for the soul.
Especially when holiday stress
sets in and takes a toll.
It’s a small form of expression
that puts a smile on your face.
A way to keep us happy
and help make our world a better place.
Why should this joy be limited
to only one season?
Spreading love and good cheer
doesn’t need any other reason.
So, hang up that mistletoe
and never take it down.
You’ll make someone happy
by turning their luck around.
