*What's a Witch Ball?*


And no, this has nothing to do with male witch anatomy. A witch ball is a clear or coloured hollow ball of blown glass that is hung in the window to ward off evil or harmful spirits. These were particularly popular in the 18th century, though for more decorative reasons.

The stories surrounding the glass balls vary from region to region, but the general idea was that evil spirits or witches would be entranced by their reflections and not be able to enter your home past the ball. Today, many modern
witches hang them in their homes for protection, though not to keep witches out.

Originally there really was no thought for the day here, just a bit of somewhat useless information. But I've changed my mind. This is a reminder not to be vain, and spend too much time gazing into a mirror. Smile
