The reference to The Green Man as father nature is very ancient.
He is not represented so much in Greek and Roman mythos, but
more, in British and Gaelic Myth and folklore. The people of
that area evolved with a great affinity to nature. They knew,
being farmers that there lives depended on the seasons and on
the crops of that year.

They prayed to 'the god of green' and Father Nature was born. At
the same time as the Queen of the dark came into being. Fether
nature has been represented and misrepresented in many wats
through the years, and noone is sure his true original form, but
today his follower mostly see him and either a man of in the
woodlands who plays with the fairie folk, or in the likeness of
Pan, An horned and hooved man.

Wiccan's and other old religion's see The Dominating Father
figure how rules the sun and the summer. And they see the Great
mother as ruling the tides, lunar cycle, and the winter.

Wicca today is a very update version of the religion that was
born with man and evovled through the years with him/and her.

You worship those you depend on and frankly in Northern Europe
you depend on the sun.

The Green man was said to walk in the woodlands with the
fairies. Residents of the British Isles refer to fairie folk as
'Greenies' and 'Greencoaties'

I recommend those interested google "The fairy Children" its and
old tale of Two fairy children, who claim to be of a race with
green skin.


That is all.
