NO TONGUE: What does a giant mistletoe, Kristin Chenoweth, The New Boys and Girls Choir of Harlem and Santa Claus have in common? They were all at the Tourneau store on Madison Avenue Tuesday night to ring in the start of the holiday season for the watch retailer. Standing under a mistletoe ball that measured six feet in diameter, Chenoweth was all smiles as she planted the first kiss on Santa’s cheek.
“It was without tongue,” Chenoweth said of the kiss. “But I’ll say, I’m single and enjoying it.”

Moments earlier, following a performance by the choir, Tourneau senior vice president Larry Barkley introduced the actress, but not before pointing out the “huge thing” that hung overhead.
“I’ve never seen anything this big,” squeaked Chenoweth to laughter. “That’s not true actually.”
