Suil (Willow) The Willow was a sacred tree to the Celts both for the wide range of materials it provided and for its unique beauty and spiritual presence.  In the Druid stories, the universe and all mankind was hatched from two scarlet eggs hidden within the willow tree. One egg formed the sun and the other the Earth.  In the seasonal festival of Beltane this story was re-enacted using painted eggs, a practice later adopted by the Christians and named Easter. Willows are most often associated with Water, but are also associated with Movement, Adaptability and Optimism.  Willow is known for its ability to relocate after being uprooted, either by nature or by man.  A fallen Willow can float downstream, and set down roots wherever the current takes them. In this way, more than any other tree the Willow became a symbol of overcoming adversity.
