Wheel of the Year


Spring Equinox - Ostara: Egg-citing Times Ahead!


Spring arrives, and witches find themselves faced with the age-old dilemma: What came first, the egg or the bunny? As they decorate eggs with arcane symbols and confuse local bunnies by casting "hopification" spells, witches set the tone for a season of growth and renewal. Beware of those overenthusiastic witches, though, who attempt to plant their entire herb garden on their window sill in a single day!


Beltane - Maypole Mania: Witches Try Circle Dancing, Sort Of...


Ah, Beltane, the season of maypoles and merriment. Witches come together to dance around the maypole, weaving ribbons with all the grace of a cat in a yarn store. The maypole often ends up looking like an abstract art masterpiece – a true testament to the unique creativity of the witching community.


Summer Solstice - Litha: Fire Up the BBQ Cauldron!


As the sun blazes, witches gather to celebrate the longest day of the year. But amidst all the fire spells and solar magic, let's not forget the classic summer activity: BBQs. Picture witches trying to grill potions and incantations instead of burgers and sausages. "Is that a phoenix feather or a skewer?" – an age-old question of the season.


Lughnasadh - Harvest Frenzy: Witches Try Their Hand at Farming


Witches may have a magical touch, but farming? Not so much. Lughnasadh sees them attempting to nurture crops with a mix of spells, moonlight serenades, and, of course, a generous sprinkle of fairy dust. Expect to see some puzzled witches puzzling over why their pumpkin patch is turning into a radish rave.


Autumn Equinox - Mabon: The Great Autumn Clean-Up


Autumn arrives, and witches can be found sweeping fallen leaves with brooms that are oddly reminiscent of Quidditch sticks. It's the season of pumpkin spice lattes, cozy sweaters, and witches trying to enchant their broomsticks to fly through drive-thru windows without causing a scene. And let's not forget the struggle of finding a coven member who's not already booked for fall-themed photoshoots in pumpkin patches.


Samhain - Witchy Trick or Treating: More Treats, Less Tricks, Please


The witch's version of Halloween, Samhain, is a time for both spirits and candy. Modern witches dress in a kaleidoscope of costumes – from spellbook-toting superheroes to broomstick-riding princesses. Keep your eyes peeled for witches mistaking real pumpkins for potion ingredients, leading to some unintentionally bizarre concoctions.


Yule - Winter Solstice: Brooms Aren't for Snow Shovelling


As winter blankets the land, witches celebrate the return of the light with the Yule festival. They light bonfires, sing chants, and exchange gifts. However, when it comes to shovelling snow, it's clear that broomsticks weren't designed for winter maintenance. Cue a series of hilarious snow-clearing spells gone awry.


The Wheel of the Year takes witches on a whimsical journey through the seasons, complete with mishaps, laughter, and plenty of magical misadventures. With each turn of the wheel, modern witches find themselves embracing ancient traditions while adding their own uniquely spin to the spellbinding cycle. So, whether they're planting cosmic crops, donning witchy costumes, or mistaking snowflakes for spell ingredients, one thing is certain: Witches know how to keep the Wheel of the Year as entertaining as it is enchanting!
