Many believe the X (i.e: xoxo) symbol became synonymous with the kiss in medieval times. People who couldn't write their names signed in front of a witness with an X. The X was then kissed to show their sincerity.

How did horseradish get its name?
In German, horseradish is called 'meerrettich' (sea radish) because it grows by the sea. Many believe the English mispronounced the German word 'meer' and began calling it 'mareradish.' Eventually it became known as horseradish. The word 'horse' (as used in 'horseradish') is believed to denote large size and coarseness.
