When many people think of witches, they imagine a scene from the Dark Ages. They think of old warty women cackling, pointed black hats, and bubbling cauldrons. While those exaggerated images are fun around Halloween, they are far from the reality for a group of modern day witchcraft practitioners known as Wiccans. When many people think of the term witch, they think of iconic witches such as the Wicked Witch of the West in "The Wizard of Oz," but these stereotypes are not what modern Wicca is about at all.
Wicca is an earth-based religious movement and form of modern paganism. It is estimated that there are over a million practicing Wiccans in the United States alone. And while Wicca has no central authority, like how Catholics defer to a Pope there are various teachings and traditions that are understood throughout the entire movement. There truly are many ways to be Wiccan.
So if you'd like to put your Wiccan vocabulary knowledge to the test, summon some courage and take this magical quiz.
