Christmas is all about festive feasts, wrapped presents underneath the tree, and pure merriment with friends and loved-ones. Oh, and did we mention presents?  Lots and lots of presents.

Sure in the promo for Castle Season 5, Episode 9: “Secret Santa,” someone dressed as jolly Old Saint Nick gets axed and left in the snow, but our hearts are still filled with yuletide delight at one special, last-second gift: Beckett and Castle caught underneath the mistletoe. (Eek!)

But there’s just one teeny, tiny little problem — they just happen to be standing under it down at the precinct.

Tradition goes that anyone nestled below this romantic sprig must lock lips, but will Caskett partake in the festivities together? We all saw Beckett sweating bullets when she and Castle almost claimed a starring moment in the rockstar documentary. While we don’t think Castle will shy away from the gesture (is there anything he wouldn’t do if an audience is watching?), we can only imagine how Beckett will react in real time with her co-workers egging her on.

Plus, it’s highly unlikely these two could steal even an “innocent” kiss without raising Captain Victoria Gates’ rule-abiding red flag. Even their lamest attempt would be fiery hot!

So, Castle fans, do you thinking Castle and Beckett will share a smooch underneath the mistletoe for all eyes to see? Or will they simply waltz away, only to revisit the same scenario later in private at Castle’s loft? We don’t want these two forced into retiring their working partnership, but any Caskett kiss sounds like a great present to us.
