Oak Apple Day holds a fascinating place in history and tradition. Dating back to the restoration of King Charles II to the English throne in 1660, this special day is celebrated annually on May 29th. Oak Apple Day commemorates the escape of the king after his defeat in the Battle of Worcester. Legend has it that Charles II hid in an oak tree to avoid capture, and ever since, the oak has been a symbol of loyalty and endurance. On this day, people wear oak apples or leaves, decorate their homes and public spaces, and partake in festive activities to honor the resilience and unity of the nation. Oak Apple Day is a cherished reminder of history, folklore, and the enduring spirit of the people.
