Birth Tree

There is a delightful myth that Ancient Britons believed the year was split into 13 months and at the turn of the month there was a battle between two tree spirits. The new tree spirit then ruled nature until defeated at the end of their month. It is claimed by modern day pagans that the ancients therefore worshipped a different tree spirit each month. Whether or not this is actually the case is hotly debated, but just to be safe and avoid angering any ancient spirits - why not have a bit of fun and celebrate a birthday by giving a tree of the "ruling spirit"?

For those sharp-eyed enough to spot something rather odd, it is said that December 23rd is not ruled by any tree as this is the proverbial "Year and a Day" in the earliest courts of law. Which leaves us a little 'stumped' on what to suggest. If anyone has any ideas, why not put your ideas on our Blog and we will see what suggestions we get.
