* A sprig of mistletoe is a central feature at the Campbell family Christmas celebrations in [[LittleWomen Louisa May Alcott's]] ''Eight Cousins''. At one point, eldest cousin Archie is so caught up in the festivities that he kisses Phebe (the maidservant) under the mistletoe, then promptly apologizes. Later, during a game of forfeits, Charlie dares Rose (the only female cousin) to take "old Mac" under the mistletoe and give him a kiss; he means their cousin, but she cleverly gets around it by bestowing the honor on their ''Uncle'' Mac instead. When cousin Mac finds out what she did, he remarks that he probably wouldn't have minded if she had done what Charlie intended. [[spoiler:This doubles as foreshadowing for both couples, since they (Archie/Phebe and Rose/Mac) fall in love in the sequel.]]

* Literature/HarryPotter gets caught under the mistletoe with Luna Lovegood, and quickly jumps out from under it. Luna considers this a wise move, "it's often infested with Nargles." Harry later finally gets his first kiss with Cho Chang under the mistletoe in ''Literature/HarryPotterAndTheOrderOfThePhoenix''.

Harry later finally gets his first kiss with Cho Chang under the mistletoe in ''Literature/HarryPotterAndTheOrderOfThePhoenix''. In his sixth year, he's much more attractive, and so large amounts of girls wait in ambush around mistletoe, fortunately he knows the secret passageways enough to get around them without too much trouble.

** It should be noted that at least FIVE guys were in on it (including {{Spider-Man}}, while married, and Mary Jane IN THE ROOM), and she only suspects after about 4.

** Two years before that issue, the same artistic team had produced ''[[{{Spider-Man}} Marvel Team-Up]]'' #79, in which Mary Jane Watson crashed the ''Daily Bugle'' Christmas party and used the same trick to seriously smooch Peter Parker. Mary Jane seems to like this stratagem - in ''The Sensational Spider-Man Annual'', the team of Matt Fraction and Salvador Larroca showed a flashback episode early in their relationship where [=MJ=] tried to encourage Peter to kiss her by wearing a Santa hat with mistletoe hanging off it, but he chickened out. However, in both instances (and the one involving Kurt and Mariko), what was shown on-panel was actually holly and not mistletoe.

* HerculePoirot, of all people, gets caught under mistletoe in "The Adventure of the Christmas Pudding," on account of being too busy exercising his little grey cells to notice where he's standing. He doesn't seem to mind the result.

* During her first year with the Comicbook/{{X-Men}}, Kitty Pryde held a sprig of Mistletoe over Peter Rasputin's head during a Christmas party as an excuse to kiss him. Kitty remembered this moment sadly when she returned to the mansion in the first issue of Creator/JossWhedon's run on ''Astonishing X-Men''.
