Like a tired old joke, people seem to stereo type witches and women in general. “if you are a witch you are always wearing black and have on heavy eye makeup” “If you are a witch you a teenager or someone looking for attention.” And yet when those people pass a witch who doesn’t wear black or “Goth” makeup, or is even a teacher, doctor, or grandparent they don’t see that these people could be witches. Witches wear regular clothes, hold down regular jobs, have regular families. We don’t necessarily wear black robes or pointed hats. We love colors, pantsuits, dresses, shorts or any other type of clothes we feel good in. I certainly don’t wear makeup, unless I am A. going out and want to dress up or B. am dressing for Halloween or a play. And it certainly isn’t all black. PLUS I am over 21 and have owned many of my own small businesses. The last being a tea and baking business. So next time you pass someone in black, don’t laugh point and say “witch” Could be someone who decided they like back and it has nothing to do with being a witch.
