World's largest bunch of mistletoe!

Terminal 5 at Heathrow Airport has erected the world's largest bunch of mistletoe in the passenger concourse - a perfect excuse for that kiss of welcome this season.

According to the YouTube description:

The ten foot by eight foot structure which took three weeks to construct weighs 43kg [about 95 pounds] and includes more than 50 feet of steel tubing and 25 stainless steel balls.

Call me soppy, but I like it! It's a nice non-commercial thought for Christmas, albeit secular.

And just think. It all sprang from the ancient pagan Druid worship of a parasitic plant.

Gotta love it, all these various traditions.
