The businesses in Oak Bay Village are inviting people to share the love this season. During December, mistletoe has been hung throughout Oak Bay Village, with the areas marked with signs on the sidewalk indicating it’s a ‘kissing spot’.

“It’s an idea we had seen work elsewhere and we thought it would be a fun way to celebrate the tradition and share some love over the season,” said Elizabeth Smith, president of the Oak Bay Business Improvement Association. “The response has been great. When people hear about it or see the mistletoe they can’t help smiling.”

Spots are spread throughout Oak Bay Village. One of the spots is in the Monterey Mews where two characters from Grace Point kiss. The Monterey Mews location is also designated as a “pooch smooch” spot where pet owners can also share the mistletoe tradition with their four-legged family members.

Anyone wanting to share pictures of their kissing stop kiss are invited to send pictures to oakbaybia@gmail.com for posting on the Oak Bay Village Facebook page.

Information about events throughout the Christmas season are posted at www.visitoakbayvillage.ca.
