Hanging mistletoe is a tradition come the holiday season—everyone knows that if you're standing under the mistletoe with someone, it means you're supposed to kiss. (Fun fact: Kissing under the mistletoe is actually a tradition with quite a few origins that dates all the way back to ancient Greece, partly mistletoe is associated with fertility.) But even if you don't follow that particular tradition, hanging mistletoe and holly can make your home look more festive.
If you're looking to pick up some fresh mistletoe this year, here's where you should go—there's no guarantee that any of these stores will have mistletoe, but they're the most likely options.
- Lowe's, Home Depot, or your local major home improvement store.
- Walmart, if your store has a garden area.
- Your local Christmas shop or tree farm.
- Your local florist.
However, there are a couple of places where you can find fresh mistletoe online and available for purchase. Starting in November and through Dec. 10, you can order real mistletoe from Triumph Plant. You can also order mistletoe from Mistletoe.com. It might also be worth checking out Amazon—it might be a challenge to find, but you can buy plants on Amazon, and the company will soon be selling Christmas trees, too.
