I'm confused. (I'm just learning about the Gypsy path, so please be patient with me)

All of those dates you have listed, do Gypsies really celebrate all of those? Are Gypsies that eclectic? I would have assumed there would be a more singular pantheon involved.

Can you elaborate?


Gypsy Magic said...

The Gypsy path is an eclectic one - travelers that they are, the tendency was to take on parts and pieces of the beliefs and ideas native to the areas where they spent the most time. Many of the old Gypsy practices and ideas have strong Catholic overtones.

The Calendar of Days is offered here as a sort of smorgasboard of ideas for how to celebrate the wheel of the year in a magickal way.

To my knowledge there is no specific calendar of magickal or ceremonial days that are sacred only to Gypsies.

Does this help?
