A tongue in cheek newbie article on magic(k) this holiday season.
FYI: The word "rede", as in Wiccan Rede, does not mean "rule" or "law". Instead, it means "suggestion" or "advice". It is perfectly okay to go against the Wiccan Rede when the situation calls for it. Hell, Gerald Gardner, the inventor of Wicca, did, therefor any Wiccan can as well. And yes, remember the phrase from Voodoo, "If you can't curse then you can't heal."
