Oklahoma's mistletoe
« on: October 29, 2013, 09:06:48 PM »
I just found out that the official flower in Oklahoma is the mistletoe. Does anyone know why that is? When I hear mistletoe, I think Christmas. I’ve never really *ociated Oklahoma with Christmas. I think barns, old movies, and musicals.

This is because mistletoe is the oldest of Oklahoma's symbols, adopted in 1893, 14 years before it become statehood. Aside from that, mistletoe grows on trees throughout the state and is particularly bounti*l in the southern regions of Oklahoma.
