The Real Origin of Christmas

So it's Christmas..... but you know what it isn't? Jesus' birthday. Let's talk about why.

Wicca Series (Part 7): Altars and the Tools

So, altars... I feel like a lot of people have a bad idea of what alters are. I think a misconception of alters when in reference to Wicca or witchcraft as it has something to do with a sacrifice .... it has to do with a cult , all that jazz. But think about it like this. Christians, Muslims,...

Wicca Series (Part 6): Witchcraft and Magickal Workings

Wiccans can be a witch and witches can be Wiccans but they are not the same thing . Wicca is a religion whereas witchcraft is a practice. It is most common that Wicca's practice witchcraft but it is not necessary just as it is not necessary for a Christian to go to church. So it is important...

Wicca Series (Part 1): Who Do We Worship?

Starting a new series as it's evident a lot of people don't know much about it. The first topic is about who we worship because I think before I can explain anything else you need this bit of info. You must remember that unlike islam, christianity, judasim, etc there is no book of rules for...
