The legend of the Acorn.

In Norse legend, Thor found shelter from a violent storm under a large oak tree. Today, people in some Nordic countries believe that acorns on the windowsill will protect the house from being hit by lightning. Because the acorn only appears on fully mature oak, it is often considered a symbol of the patience to reach goals over long periods of time.

In Norse and Celtic culture the acorn symbolizes perseverance and hard work.
