Holiday Meme: Question 2

Do you hang mistletoe?

I have in the past, but like so many things, I have mixed feelings about it.  I love the way it looks, very festive bit of green with a little red ribbon.  However, I've got some negative memories of being embarrassed as a teen by being caught standing (trying not to catch anyone's attention) only to have it pointed out publicly I was "under the mistletoe" and clearly wanted to be kissed.  Since everyone in the room was either related to me (ugh!) or the son of parents' friends (who was now clearly embarrassed too and maybe even thought I'd set this up (cringe and double ugh!), this was not a happy experience.

So much as I love the way mistletoe looks, I've generally refrained from hanging any.
