A Curse in the Form of an Animal

In Romania, old-style witchcraft is thriving after the fall of the Communist government in 1989.  (Link here if the video does not load.) A fee of €500 for a curse — and it is tax-free!

    🙁 No video; when I click on the link it leads me to a video ad for some type of video game. Then you get sound in Romanian but no visual. What am I doing wrong?

  2. Medeina Ragana says:

    Hooray! I was able to watch the video and even downloaded it. Very very interesting video and certainly this traditional witchcraft is absolutely nothing like what our “modern” witchcraft is like.

    They even had the bit about the lawmakers trying to tax the witches and decided not to because they were afraid of being hexed!

    Speaking of witchcraft… This was sent to me by a friend and I thought I’d pass it along to you for a giggle: https://broadly.vice.com/en_us/article/witches-allegedly-stole-penises-and-kept-them-as-pets-in-the-middle-ages
