Witch Watch: Wishing can make things happen

Canton Observer, December 4, 1975
Break a wishbone and whoever has the heavy half wins their wish. Should it break evenly the old cat gets the wish and the participants are left hoping until the next feast.

Gundella believed in wishes but with a caveat. That the wisher make every effort to obtain the desired object and doesn't just leave the matter to happenstance. Using emotion, imagination and belief--the three ingredients also necessary for casting a successful spell--are necessary to bring forth a wish. Just as famous inventors, innovators and artists brought forth great works of beauty and industry.
