The witches that we know now come in all shapes and forms. There’s the green, wart-nosed villain who rides on a broom and likes to terrorize children. There’s also the old hag who lives either with her coven or by herself in the woods. Then there’s the suburban wife or teenager, who’s just trying to control her powers and do wonderful deeds.
But the real origins and history of witches are far darker – and for the witches themselves, deadlier. The early Christians of Europe for instance, saw them as malevolent practitioners of black magic. However, many of these ‘witches’ during that time were simply wise women, who knew how to use herbs. From the mid-1400s up to 1660, thousands of women accused of being witches were either tortured, or killed.
Today, witches are one of the more popular symbols for Halloween. Far from their morbid past, they are now delightful and colorful characters that make this holiday a special treat for all.
You don’t need Halloween as an excuse to use these spook-tacular Witch fonts. All you need is a dash of spirit, a pinch of inspiration, and a lot of creativity.
