Pagan Beanstalk

The Pagan Beanstalk is a blog site containing the author’s musings on religion, magical studies, green pharmacy and many more topics. Modern holidays in their ancient forms are discussed, with explanations offered as to how the old Pagan celebrations became Christian days of observance.

The author uses a “quick facts” format with several topics to cover a popular topic for readers. Though a myriad of topics are discussed, many center around ancient German traditions, like the non-Christian origins of Walpurgisnacht, the traditional New Year’s Eve celebration, witches and goddesses, the German water goblin and the giants in German and Norse tradition.
