I knew Queen Victoria had something to do with the Christmas tree but had no idea she was into this. So where did this strange custom originate?It actually started way before her reign but she is credited with handling the comeback. It was then called "sweet ball" not only did it look beautiful, it smelled good too, which was a plus in the days before daily showers! (tru dat) By the end of the 19th century, kissing balls symbolized romantic love. (now all you need is about $20) As the 20th century ended, kissing balls fell out of favor but some traditionalists still love the lore.
