Halloween is an important occasion for any POD seller. Not only has a great shopping demand, this also gives sellers many ideas to create unique designs for products. In addition to the familiar images of Halloween such as Dracular, Satan, pumpkin lanterns, zombie, ‘witchs’ are also a popular image. Many people will think that the witch is just a fictional character, but in fact, there are witchcraft communities in America and Europe, known as Wiccan or Pagan Witchcraft.
Wicca or Pagan Witchcraft is a modern Pagan religion, a nature-based polytheism faith with roots in many pre-Christian cultures in Europe. Wicca also incorporates the practice of magic, several scholars have referred to it as a “magico-religion”
There are also many variations of this community. Some Wiccans are polytheism which means worshiping many gods, while others worship only Horned God, Mother Goddess or Triple Goddess (Neopaganism). And the other Wiccans worship nature, and call it the Goddess of Earth.
Most of the Wiccans vehemently deny that Satan is one of their gods. Wicca follow a code known as the Wiccan Rede: “An it harm none, do what ye will”, it is specifically explained in the Law of Threefold Return which holds that whatever benevolent or malevolent actions a person performs will return to that person with triple force, or with equal force on each of the three levels of body, mind, and spirit. That is also the reason why witches who practice white magic like to call themselves “natural witch” (green witch) or “white witch” to separate themselves from Satanism (people who connect with Satan or devil worship).
An article by the Daily Mail UK said that the number of witches in the US has soared to 1.5 million people in recent years.
