It's a Witch Thing
Today's entry is inspired by another blogger I follow. She wrote in her "Stuff Christian Culture Likes" blog that a popular response to good things happening in one's life is met with the phrase "It's a God thing".
Pagans and Wiccans are no different. When good things happen, or when people ask too many questions that the Witch in question cannot answer, one response is "It's a Witch thing. You wouldn't understand." A variation is "It's a Goddess thing."
So, if a spell seems to have worked (because there mustn't be any coincidences), it's a Witch thing. Why do Wiccans and Pagans do the things they do (such as spell casting, working skyclad, hugging trees, etc.)? When people ask about the rede or mixing pantheons, tell 'em, "It's a Witch thing. You wouldn't understand."
On second thought, don't say that. If you don't know the answer to a question, just say so. It doesn't make you any less of a witch, I promise.
