The Popularity of Witchcraft Among Teens


The Guardian recently published an article about the growing popularity of witchcraft among teenage girls. The article makes the statement, “Not since the 1990s – the era of Buffy’s geek goddess, Willow Rosenberg, and a scowling Fairuza Balk in The Craft – have witches been so much in demand.”

This article caught our attention because, during this era, we published an article on youth and the occult with an extended section on witchcraft in which we noted, “One of the most notable practices being marketed to youth is witchcraft, or magic, frequently in the form of Wicca…Witchcraft is on the rise among young people, particularly high school and college-age females.”
