    No offense intended, but some of your information seems reminiscent of of those loopy neo-pagan-re-inventing-history narratives that don't have a solid basis in reality  (stuff written by Starhawk, for example).

    As someone who loves history and is a bit of a nature-worshipper, I wish more reliable information existed about pre-Christian, northern European pagan cosmology - but I am not convinced it does.

    And call me picky, but for anyone that burns wood for heat, the idea of "hiding" an unlimbed evergreen tree pilfered from a neighbor in an "unused" corner of the house is a bit silly.
