For hundreds of years, to people around the World, the stork has symbolized the arrival of a newborn baby. The tradition of love is evident in its very name. The English word is derived from the Greek “storage”, meaning strong natural affection. The belief that the stork delivers babies grew from legends of long ago. One factor that helped create this myth was the stork’s tenderness toward its young.
In many lands the stork’s presence was a sign of good luck and prosperity, and people encouraged them to build their nests on their rooftops. The belief was also common that they loved the water and visited swamps and lakes frequently. Ancient traditions held that the souls of unborn children dwelt in these watery places. So it was easy to link the beliefs and traditions of years past to the wonderful white bird with eyeglasses and a top hat and jacket as the one who lovingly delivered beautiful babies.
