The Mistle-Child

Sir Hugh Platt says: “By sitting uppon a hill late in an evening, neare a wood, in a few nights a firedrake will appeare; marke where it lighteth, and there you shall find an oake with a mistletoe therein, at the roots wherof there is a mistel child, wherof many strange things are conceived.”- W.C. Hazlitt’s Dictionary of Faiths and Folklore.
