Nordic witchcraft still relevant, and feared..

Recommended Posts

NRK is the larges newspaper and TV channel in Norway and it still reports about witchcraft. Especially in the north where I live people still believe and fear cunning folk of all sorts. "Ganning" (or also "Ganding or "Gand" ), a Nordic form of "magic"  (I have a bit of a issue with the word "magic") is still very much alive up here, even the biggest football team fear it, but..my point is, use Google translate and read about some of the recent articles about Nordic witchcraft here:
