Very ancient legends and traditions are linked to the mistletoe. It is still considered of good luck during christmas period in many countries. In the sixth book of the Roman epic poem the Aeneid, Virgil tells that the Sibyl (priestess) from the Temple of Apollo instructs Virgilio’s hero Aeneas to take a golden branch of mistletoe to present to the Fates to grant him passage to the underworld.
