London’s blushing! Mistletoe on Tube network causes awkward commute
Commuters, used to spending rush hour standing in irritable silence, were unsure how to react to the festive surprise, traditionally hung up at Christmas obliging those standing beneath to share a holiday kiss.
Someone's left a piece of mistletoe hanging from the roof of the tube on the Victoria line 🎄🎅🏻👊❤️ pic.twitter.com/TiY1DIJxF1— Elliot Wagland (@elliotwagland) December 14, 2015
The berries were strung up by a group called MistleTube, which says its aim is to “bring some Christmas cheer to one of the most miserable places in the capital.”
Never seen anyone look so uncomfortable as the two men who just got caught under a piece of hanging mistletoe on the tube together. 🙊— Sophie Deering (@SophieDeering) December 14, 2015
Some commuters tweeted about their sightings of Mistletoe, calling them “cute” and “adorable.” One user, however, tweeted that despite the festive cheer, some people are “still miserable” on their commute.
The group is urging people to share Christmas spirit by using the hashtag #mistletube on social media.
MistleTube told the Independent: “We’ve been spreading the Christmas love on the District, Victoria and Northern lines. We plan to do more the next few days!”
