Wicca

Wicca (English: /ˈwɪkə/), also termed Pagan Witchcraft, is a contemporary Pagan new religious movement. It was developed in England during the first half of the 20th century and was introduced to the public in 1954 by Gerald Gardner, a retired British civil servant. Wicca draws upon a diverse set of ancient pagan and 20th century hermetic motifs for its theological structure and ritual practices.

Wicca is a pagan religion that follows the path of a Goddess and God. The God and Goddess each have three stages to worship: young steward/father/sage and maiden/mother/crone. Wiccans celebrate the changing of the seasons with eight holidays called Sabbats. Each holiday has a different message: life, death, rebirth, fertility, harvest, etc. Wiccans bring the four elements: Air, Fire, Water, and Earth; into their rituals and celebrations. They believe in a law called the Threefold Law, which states "what you send out, comes back three times or all at once times three."
