Oak King and Holly King Litha (Note Card)

Regular price $5.00

Holiday cards for Pagan holidays! Because why shouldn't we have bright cheerful greeting cards to send people? There is no reason. Whatsoever.

This card references the story that the Holly King and the Oak King fight every midsummer (Litha) and midwinter (Yule) and each rules for half the year. For Litha, the Oak King wins out (and stands over a defeated Holly King - I subbed chess kings because I love chess). The pieces are inked and the plants are done in colored pencil.

A tidbit about Litha (paraphrased from various sources):
Litha/Midsummer: falls on June 21st in 2015. The summer solstice, the longest day of the year, when everything is growing full force and the triumph of light over dark is celebrated. It's also a holiday with a strong association with faeries. Red and yellow are popular colors for this day.

Card Details:
Cards are approximately 5 1/2" by 4 1/4", and come with a slightly larger envelope to put them in (although there is a stamp on the one in the photos there will be no stamp on the one you receive; it is just for reference). This one is also blank on the inside, so that you may fill it with the message of your choice! (Such as "Happy Litha!").
