Mistletoe Etiquette

Christmas is traditions
some last and others die
some leave you feeling fuzzy
others leave you asking “Why?”
There’s rules that must be followed
And most of them we know
About gifts and cards and Christmas trees
and then there’s mistletoe….

We all know the tradition
We all know what it is
You meet under the berries
And then you both must kiss
But, there’s etiquette surrounding
The dreaded mistletoe
And there are things you aren’t aware of
And I thought you all should know….

Always kiss your Aunties
Do it quick and on the cheek
Their lips are full of slobber
and sometimes they just reek

Grandmas, get a quick kiss
And ignore the sounds they make
Don’t hug them too tightly
They are brittle and might break

Avoid the pervert Uncles
With hands and eyes that roam
They act one way at Christmas
And another way at home

The little kids, won’t kiss you
So, it’s fun to give them chase
Kiss them with lots of slobber
So, they can wipe it off their face

Make sure kissing Grandad
That he has got all of his teeth
That they’re not somewhere stuck in a glass
or worse, smiling from a wreath

Always kiss your Mum though
Beware, Mums will always cry
and they will get you going too
No matter how hard you try

Kiss the one you came with
Let them know just how you feel
That your love for them’s eternal
And your love for them is real

Kissing is tradition
and at Christmas can be great
But, don’t kiss all the women
And forget about your date

The most important rule of all
If you don’t want your bell rung
When kissing ‘neath the mistletoe
DO NOT USE THE TONGUE
