Signs you might be a pagan:

I am trying to figure out which day will be for my Pagan posts..but for now, I thought this was cute :)

Thanks Gregg @ thebookofshadowsblog for this list!

I promise I don't intend to offend anyone, if you may find it offensive, please check out my other posts on scrapping or something. It is just a list for fun :)

1. You know the term "fluffy bunny" has nothing to do with Easter.

2. When you are sworn in in court, you bring your own grimoire.

3. You've been seen talking to cats. They talk back, and you understand what they are saying.

4. When asked if you believe in God, you ask, "Which one?"

5. You know what "widdershins" means. You apply it.

6. You have an entire spice cabinet and you don't cook. You know that Laurel and Bay Leaves are the same thing.

8. You think Mercedes Lackey should be a cultural icon.

9. You know that there are exceptions to the laws of physics. You've caused them.

10. The first thing your guests say is, "My, that's a nice... altar ... you have there.

11. On Halloween, you yell "Happy New Year!" at passers-by.

16. When you say "Mother Nature," you don't mean it in an anthropomorphic way.

17. Gaia is NOT the lady on Captain Planet.

19.In religion 101. you were disappointed because they didn't cover YOUR Gods.

20. You know that there is a right way and a wrong way to draw a pentacle, you can explain the difference.

21. You've spent the last year and a half looking for a familiar.

22. You talk to trees, they talk back.

23. You KNOW dragons and fae exist. You've seen them.

24. Painting yourself blue, spiking your hair, and dancing naked around a bonfire sounds like large amounts of fun.

Very entertaining. My Wife's side of the family are mostly Irish, some Italian, some Hungarian. My ancestry is mostly English with a sprinkle of Scottish/Irish. My Son has a Celtic tattoo around his arm.

I don't know why I needed to say all that. I guess it was just to show my enterest from a cultural point of view.

I like the part about the Christmas tree. funny and true. But, what is a Widdershin?

widdershin means to take a course opposite the apparent motion of the sun
