Mistletoe is a symbol for peace and joy. 

The idea originated in the ancient times of the Druids: 
whenever enemies met under the mistletoe in the forest, 
they had to lay down their arms and observe a truce 
until the next day. 
From this comes the custom of hanging a ball of mistletoe 
from the ceiling and exchanging kisses 
under it as a sign of friendship and goodwill.
