Past and present

Someone asked me why I often write about the history of dates, things or places in my blog.

The main reason is because wicca is a religion that looks back to traditions from the past.

Wicca is a neopagan spiritual path that was developed in the mid 20th century by Gerald Gardner (1884-1964), a British occultist. However, it borrows heavily from other magical traditions, folklore and older pagan religions.

Modern witches try to understand the truth about the past in order to develop rituals and ways of working that are appropriate for the current times.

I also enjoy finding out about the origins of different traditions, learning about how and when ancient pagans conducted their religious celebrations and then writing a little about these things in my blog.
