.....always associated with this time of year (long before the traditional 19thc Christmas tree) the Fir tree is steeped in many cultures, and most continents, folklore. In Celtic folklore especially around the winter solstice. A symbol of endurance, long sight and clear vision of what is to come, and what is beyond. Wishing you all fortitude and luck for the New Year and beyond. Happy Hogmanay!
