I generally don’t consider the Oak and Holly King in my rituals. They don’t seem to be part of traditional Celtic lore. At least, I haven’t seen them anywhere… That said, the actual trees do play a role in our seasonal observations. Damh’s thoughts have been helpful to me in rethinking their place in modern Druidic lore. Perhaps I should think less of them as Gods, as seems to be the case in Wicca, and more as Nature Spirits?
