Secrets of the Solstice

A special virtual presentation for the reasons behind winter decorations help explain why we kiss beneath mistletoe among other symbols of the season.

In December, natural symbols celebrating the holidays abound: evergreens, hollies, mistletoe, even branching menorahs and the first fruits of Kwanzaa. But what happens at the solstice? And what is the strange and wonderful history of these– and other– symbols? Executive Director Mike Weilbacher  offers a special virtual lecture on the reasons for seasonal decorations.

At long last, you’ll understand why we kiss under the mistletoe.
