First there was Brexit: the departure of Britain from the European Union.

Then there was Grexit: the proposed departure of Greece from the EU.

So what would you call it if all the witches of Europe threatened to hop broom and fly?

What else but Hexit?

Now, why would the witches of Europe threaten to leave Eurostan, for the first time in human history, witchless?

(Witchless. Now there's an adjective for you.)

Well, not being a European witch myself, I couldn't say. EU-wide recognition as an indigenous people with a right to our own ways and religious practice? Return of all properties historically associated with witches?

Whatever the reason, the results could, of course, only be catastrophic. With no witches left to turn the Wheel, the climate-change-induced meteorological extremes that we're currently experiencing would look like a picnic in the park by comparison. Certainly agricultural output could be expected to plummet disastrously.

So look out Europe. If you think Brexit is a mess, just wait till Hexit.

And just where would all those hundreds of thousands of European witches go if Hexit were indeed to become a reality?

Well: where else but to the republic where witches dance? We've even got a Law of Return here.

Witches of Europe: Welcome to sunny Paganistan.

Poet, scholar and storyteller Steven Posch was raised in the hardwood forests of western Pennsylvania by white-tailed deer. (That's the story, anyway.) He emigrated to Paganistan in 1979 and by sheer dint of personality has become one of Lake Country's foremost men-in-black. He is current keeper of the Minnesota Ooser.
