The word Hæxan is not used by the Hæxan. Hæxan call themselves Uuurah (pron:Wurrah). Hæxan is a word for witch (german : hexe; dutch :heks). It is the name non-Hæxan use to describe those who call themselves Uuurrah. Now those who call themselves Uuurrah use the word Haexan as a sobriquet. In the Hæxan- alphabet the letter X does not even exist. On the other hand the Hæxan-alphabet still use letters like Þ (also used in Icelandic). For their magic Uuurrah use the Hæxan-alphabet.
The Affair of the Poisons (L’affaire des poisons) was a major murder scandal in France which took place in 1677–1682, during the reign of King Louis XIV. During it, a number of prominent members of the aristocracy were implicated and sentenced on charges of poisoning and witchcraft. The scandal reached into the inner circle of the king.The affair proper opened in February 1677 on charges of forgery and murder.
Authorities rounded up a number of fortune tellers and alchemists who were suspected of selling not only divinations, séances and aphrodisiacs, but also “inheritance powders” (poison). Some of them confessed under torture and gave authorities lists of their clients, who had allegedly bought poison to get rid of their spouses or rivals in the royal court.
The Poison Affair implicated 442 suspects: 367 orders of arrests were issued, of which 218 were carried out. Of the condemned, 36 were executed; five were sentenced to the galleys; and 23 to exile. This excludes those who died in custody by torture or suicide.
Hæxan do not celebrate December 25th as Christmas. Hæxan, and especially the Zuyverah, celebrates the winter solstice as midwinter (Hæxan : Midwinthar) around December 21th. The solstice itself may have been a special moment of the annual cycle of the year even during neolithic times. Astronomical events, which during ancient times controlled the mating of animals, sowing of crops and metering of winter reserves between harvests, show how various cultural mythologies and traditions have arisen.
Another name for midwinter is Yule of Joel. Yule or Yuletide (“Yule time”) is a Pagan religious festival observed by the historical Germanic peoples, later being absorbed into and equated with the Christian festival of Christmas.
So for Hæxan December 25th Christmas and 1st January New Year are one and the same and celebrated around December 21st as Midwinthar.
Hæxan celebrate Midwinthar with the Midwinthar ritual. The Midwinthar ritual is all about the rebirth of Sonah (Sun).The rituals starts at dusk with the funeral of the old Sonah and ends at dawn, with the celebration of birth of the new Sonah.Young Hæxan like to jump through fire to welcome the new-born Sonah.Most Hæxan practice solitary of in small family groups, but on Widwinthar, we try to meet secretly, deep in the woods.
On Christmas and New Year Hæxan pretend they celebrate these holidays, to mislead the others.
