Twelfth tree and letter: “Peith” (“P”).

From 28 October to 24 November, the Celtic alphabet was presided by the rosy viburnum, an ancestor of our elder, the tree of the last month, growing at the water edge, Lady of the Lake’s home, who gives her power (symbolized by Excalibur) to anyone who becomes king of his actions (Arthur, Osiris, Achilles…).

Thirteenth tree: last season.

“Ruis” (“R”), our elder tree. It’s the tree end. Always associated with witches, in the superstitions of all of the Northern Europe was banned for cribs of children, which are traditionally made of birch, to assured them a long life.

It has always been an unlucky tree: Judas hanged himself in an elder, King William Rufus was killed by an archer in an elder stake and there are legends that relate the wood of the cross of Christ was made of elder.

– “To burn elder at home attracts the devil,” the folklore of many places says.

Even today, throughout Europe and America, number 13 is bad luck.

It dominates from 25 November to 22 December.

What about the extra days? Are those of the transition, dedicated to the death of the Old Year and to the Eve. Because this day, a king will be born, a king who will win the favors of the Goddess or, as it was demonstrated by Sir James Frazer in “The Golden Bough”, where the suitors will fight like lions against the old king and some day, he will be defeated and they will succeed him on the throne of the Moon.

Tomorrow about the vowels.

Lord's Pavilion

As the cricket season draws to a close, Marylebone Cricket Club (MCC) can report a surge in popularity for guests seeking a full day of luxury hospitality at Lord’s during a Test Match in 2016. In the Home of Cricket’s most iconic venues – the Captains’ Lounge and Marylebone Suite – hospitality packages which included a hearty breakfast, sumptuous four-course lunch and luxury afternoon tea, sold out quickly for the first three days of the England v Sri Lanka and England v Pakistan Investec Test Matches. Private Boxes with the best views of the action for up to 18 guests also sold out fast for the same days. MCC revealed a sharp increase in revenue for its 2016 Sri Lanka Test Match hospitality packages compared with 2014 when the team last played England at Lord’s. Revenues for hospitality were up by nearly 30% over the same period in 2014 whilst private box sale revenues were up by a healthy 60%. Nick Kenton, MCC Head of Sales, Meetings & Events and Hospitality, said: “2016 has been a fantastic year for enjoying a day of cricket whilst experiencing the very best food, drink and hospitality that Lord’s has to offer. “This year’s sales figures show that hospitality packages at Lord’s were in huge demand and continue to be a key part of the summer sporting calendar.” Lord’s also expects high demand for its new hospitality packages, to be released this autumn for 2017 matches. These include England v South Africa from 6th to 10th July and England v West Indies from 7th to 11th September. Packages for the England v Ireland Royal London One-Day International on 7th May 2017 are also expected to sell out in record time. Details of all hospitality options at Lord’s can be found on its website
