It’s Fall, y’all! There’s finally a chill in the air and the leaves are showing their true colors. Apple cider is readily available, the kiddos are dressed up in their cutest costumes, the grownups are dressed in their geekiest gear, and there’s candy EVERYWHERE. I absolutely adore this time of year. Fall is my favorite season. In no small part because right about now, my witch obsession is not considered weird. Since the witching season is finally upon us, here’s a list of 5 of the best witching families to revisit this time of year.
Have you ever considered how many different cultures create the foundation of modern America? It’s a lot. Consider it for a moment and really think through it. There’s Native American, British, Spanish, French, African, Chinese, and too many others to list here. Now consider this… every single one of these cultures has some form of legend or belief in witches and witchcraft. Even when they’re not called witches exactly, there is someone in the history of nearly every culture who could be put in that classification.

Almost all witches get my love: spell-casting witches, potion-making witches, good witches, bad witches, natural witches, practicing witches, whatever. And in case you were wondering, I absolutely count wizards, warlocks, sorcerers, and mages in this category. Fortunately for me, there is lots of entertainment that features these folks and lets me enjoy them in all their magical glory. I’ve even found that if you pay special attention, there are some pretty fascinating things you can learn from witches and their stories. Allow me to break it down.
Here are ten things that makes witches so amazing and what they’re able to teach us about ourselves: Continue reading →
