From the tip of his wand burst the silver doe: She landed on the office floor, bounded once across the office, and soared out of the window. Dumbledore watched her fly away, and as her silvery glow faded he turned back to Snape, and his eyes were full of tears.

"After all this time?"

"Always" said Snape

It is traditional to hang mistletoe at Christmas. Anyone who passes under it is supposed to be kissed. I never understood the kissing thing as mistletoe is poisonous, but it's tradition.

Well, you're not forced into kissing someone if you happen to be standing under mistletoe - that would just be rude, haha :)

Check out this Wikipedia Link

It explains the origin of the myth, and the most probable one is to do with mistletoe bearing fruit at winter solstice (pagan?), which is the "birth of the new year". This would link the plant to being used or viewed as a plant to aid fertility - hence all the romance under it! ;)

Like an angel with two broken wings, reach to the sky again.
Like a devil, meant for better things, I will find my place on high.

I remain, in shadows growing wings
