FAQ

Q: Why do all Witches wear black?

This question is mostly due to media when I ask why it is the question is being asked.

It can also be linked to the fact that black is in many cultures a symbol of clergy. Priests, Ministers and Rabbis all favor black as the main color of their ritual garb.

How would you answer?
