A Witches’ Toast

Wherever the Wica may be

In air, on land or sea,

May the Wica blessed be!


Since we cannot be together in person, I’d like to propose a toast, which can be said by all witches & Wiccans, of whatever tradition or path, whenever the hands of the clock make a 72° angle: two of the points of a pentagram.

The proposer of the toast can say the first three lines, and the rest of those present can join in by replying “Wassail”.

As you say “Wassail” (to which the traditional reply is “Drinc hael”) remember that it means “be healthy” which seems rather appropriate right now.

This is not ancient: I wrote it just now. It is rather similar to another toast from another tradition, though.
