Story about Christmas 聖誕節 - 槲寄生下接吻的傳統源自北歐神話? 封面照片

你知道為什麼人們會在槲寄生下接吻嗎?


那是源自北歐的傳說



巴德爾,奥丁之子



巴德爾備受其他眾神寵愛

眾神想要保護他免受世界萬物的侵害


祂的母親弗麗嘉(Frigg)讓水火、金屬、岩石還有所有的生物都立誓不會傷害巴德爾


眾神們在聚會上測試此誓言是否為真,因而向巴德爾投石、射箭、噴火


他確實都毫髮無傷



但是有一個神因為這樣的差別待遇而對巴德爾心生不滿

那就是奸詐之神,洛基

洛基發現巴德爾的母親弗麗嘉(Frigg)忘記了問槲寄生



一棵卑微、渺小,看似無害的植物

它被完全忽視


洛基用槲寄生做了一支箭

這支箭射死了巴德爾


巴德爾的母親-弗麗嘉悲痛萬分,心都碎了

她因此下令槲寄生往後都不得用作武器

而且從它底下經過的人都會得到一個吻


後來,我們在假期的時候

都會在門廊上高掛槲寄生

如此一來我們就再也不會忽視他


Do you know the myth of why people kiss under mistletoe?


It's

a Norse myth


Balder, the son of Odin,

was the most beloved by the other Gods

so much that they wanted to protect him

from all the dangers in the world.


His mother, Frigg, took an oath


from fire and water,metal,stone, and every living thing that they would never hurt Balder.


At a gathering,they tested him.

Stones,arrows and flame were all hurled at him.


Nothing worked


But there was one God who wasn’t so enamored of Balder.


The God of mischief, Loki.


Loki discovered that Frigg had forgotten to ask mistletoe


a tiny,seemingly harmless plant

and completely overlooked.


Loki fashioned a dart out of mistletoe

and it killed Balder.


Frigg was heartbroken.


She decreed that mistletoe would never again be used as a weapon

and that she would place a kiss on anyone

who passed under


So now we hang mistletoe underneath our door

during the holidays


so that we will never overlook it again.
