There are a lot of factors you need to think about when selecting the proper type and treatment of wood for all your restaurant tables, chairs, bars, and other pieces of restaurant furniture. But here’s a fun one, particularly if own a Celtic pub or neo-pagan influenced coffee shop.
The Celtic Tree Calendar is a calendar with thirteen lunar divisions. The modern tree calendar is based on a concept that letters in the ancient Celtic Ogham alphabet corresponded to a tree, and each tree has symbolic meanings, sort of like the Western or Chinese zodi
acs. While the Hawthorn has a raw, energy about it — use it for magic related to masculine power, business decisions, making professional connections — Hazel is often associated in Celtic lore with sacred wells and magical springs containing the salmon of knowledge, and is related to wisdom and knowledge, dowsing and divination, and dream journeys.
For setting the aura of your establishment, consulting the Celtic Wood Calendar might be a neat exercise, and distract you from some of the more mundane and decidedly not earthy decisions of running a business. Even J.K. Rowling got in on the action, using the Celtic Wood Calendar to assign the woods of Harry, Ron, and Hermione’s wands.
