In a belief dating back to the mist of pre-Celtic history, the Hawthorne is a fairy bush in Ireland, a favorite meeting place for fairies. In May, when Hawthorne is in full bloom, the belief is that the fairies are happy! To avoid making fairies angry, no Irish farmer will ever cut the bush down or even trim it.
