"What Tree Did You Fall From?"

No one but Matt showed interest in the “What tree are you?” post, but I figured I’d share all the possibilities anyway. Below is the exact email as I received it, except that I’ve 1) linked the trees to their descriptions to make it easier on you, 2) listed some people’s birthdays for my own reference, and 3) formatted it a little better.

Note how they repeat, and how some days are set off by themselves. One of these is Sean’s birthday, September 23, which makes him an “Olive Tree”. (I would say that some of that is true, but I’m not sure about all of it.)

Also note that Mari is the Lime Tree. heheheheh.

This seems like a neat reference for character creation.

“Find your birthday and then find your tree. This is really cool and somewhat accurate, also in line with Celtic astrology.”
