It is said that if you can catch a falling Oak Leaf you shall
have no colds all winter.
Many cultures believed the Oak (a-ta-ya) has very powerful protection
properties. Acorns were carried for good luck and said to have
the powers of protection, health, money, healing, potency, fertility,
luck, wisdom and strength. Planting an acorn in the dark will
ensure money in the near future.
The Oak has been held in high esteem by many cultures because
of its size, longevity, and nutritious acorns.
. In Germany a belief exists that children come from an ancient
hollow Oak tree and are brought by the doctor.
