    Okay like people do know that the witch trials were fully just sexism right? Like they used to go 'oh I know how to tell if they're a witch! If they have a clitoris, they are a witch!' Like that is legitimately one of the ways they would 'identify witches' lol.
    Besides that point, I find this video so interesting. History in general is interesting to me, and dark history is infinitely more so.
    I love getting in the minds of insane/unhealthy people lol. Scary but super super interesting

    Yes, They were bored actually their House maid i think named Tituba from Africa or Haiti practiced witchcraft and then she was teaching the girls about it. They didn't want her father to know so they pretended being possesed and their father believed them. They had Tituba in prison she confessed of doing WitchCraft and she was released and was told to Never return. The hangings happened because some other girls pretended of being possesed blamed others of doing witchcraft though they didnt. Also in the map that was made of the Town had Poor people on one side and wealthy people, I think the wealthy side blamed the poor side because they didnt like them (I wrote this before watching this, so im not sure if they said this ;-;)

    As a person studying Wicca, if like to put a little of my two cents in, feel free to take it how ever, or reply or idk.

    I think witch craft is WAY different then most people, media, and Hollywood see it.

    Witch craft isn't chanting Latin around fires and sacrificing humans and dead animals and whatever. Unless you practice black magic (bad) even then it's still not the same? Granted j don't know alot about black magic, but it's just kinda hex's.

    White magic which is the most popular type of magic, it's all the good stuff :3
    Conecting with nature, using the earth and elements to draw powers from it, there are spells, but it's for like good luck, etc etc.

    So yeah. This wasn't really about the witch trials and such. But more about witch craft
