Mistletoes are perhaps the most popular flower arrangements for Christmas. This particular flower arrangement with the celebration of Christmas dates back to time even before the birth of Jesus Christ. Considered to have a Pagan origin, the mistletoe was used by the Druids about two hundred years before Christ’s birth for celebrating the coming of winter. According to the tradition, the Druids would gather this parasitic evergreen plant upon other trees and then decorate their homes with it, to mark the celebration of Christmas.

On the other hand, each of the flowers of Christmas like Christmas rose, Ivy, Holly and Mistletoe have a special significance of love, peace and prosperity.
