so glad to be here
« on: November 09, 2020, 10:55:05 am »
Hello everyone! Thank you so much for letting me join the forum.

My name is Freya (yes, real name) and I am originally from the Basque Country, north of Spain, a land very rich in Celtic folklore, and with a long history of witchcraft. (The Zugarramurdi witches are (in)famous!).

I was born into a mainly agnostic family but christened as a catholic. I have never felt very connected to that religion and I have always felt very interested in witchcraft and folklore in general.

I have just started reading about paganism and traditional witchcraft not that long ago and so many things have clicked! suddenly many things in my life make sense (ie I have always said that I have a connection with ghosts and other paranormal stuff).
I am extremely new so I am basically just learning and trying to find a path. I am very attracted to Nordic paganism but it makes more send due to my roots to look into Celtic paganism (also, I currently live in the UK) but eventually I will go with what my heart tells me to follow, once I have the proper information in both pagan ways.

I am happy to have found my way here and I hope to learn from everyone!
Born in a land with a rich Celtic folklore
Witches are called sorginak there.
Very new to the craft, still finding my path.
