    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 he 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 lightning.
