Our native Pagan heritage has so much underlying wisdom, if we only have eyes to seek it out.

The cycle of natural fruitfulness has been articulated in many god-forms.  One pair, which has persisted from Pagan times into modern tradition, is that of the Oak King and Holly King, gods correspondingly linked to the Waxing Year and the Waning Year.

The wren is emblematic of the Holly King’s bird and the robin stands as the re-born sun belonging to the Oak King. 

The eternal battle betwixt winter and summer or light against darkness is commonly played out in traditional folk dance across Britain and in Wales.

Green Man traditions in England, which classically include a ritual battle in some structure, persist. 

Our ancient spiritual heritage remains. 

It will soon be the Midsummer Solstice.
