Acorns in history and myth

Acorns appear only on adult trees and are often a symbol of patience and the fruition of long, hard labour. An English proverb states that 'Great oaks from little acorns grow', urging the listener to wait for maturation of a project or idea.

A German folk-tale has a farmer trying to outwit Satan, to whom hew has promised his soul, by asking for a reprieve until his first crop is harvested; he plants acorns and has many years to enjoy first.

In some cultures it is said that good luck will follow if acorns are carried in your pockets.

The Norse legend that Thor sheltered from a thunderstorm under an oak tree has led to the belief that having an acorn on a windowsill will prevent a house from being struck by lightening.

Perfect gift! October 16, 2014
Reviewer: Jacqueline Fisher from Reading, Berkshire United Kingdom  
Bought for my daughter who has just had a baby. Perfect present from mother to daughter and I liked the symbolism attached to acorns. Just as seen in picture and delivered next day.
