The tradition of kissing under the mistletoe comes from the ancient Celts where the evergreen mistletoe was considered a medical and magic plant. Under its protection against illness, witchcraft, demons, fire, and enemies, the Celts gave each other
(beneath the mistletoe) the kiss of peace. "With the white felt I want to convey the feeling of the white and icy wintertime with
snow and ice, "says the designer. "The golden parts of ornaments in the bouquet and the golden bow have to support the holy
and magical wishes which are represented by the mistletoe and give a feeling of the magic and spirit of Wintertime," she
continues. Completely handmade by Steiff artisans, the mistletoe bouquet hearkens back to a time when Steiff made animals
and accessories of felt - proving that this grand tradition lives on at Steiff today with this breathtaking Mistletoe bear. It is a
must-have for holiday decorating and collecting.
