The disturbance of the air by witches (by flight or weather-witching); riding out on beehives, brooms, fences, cats, or other vehicles; animals prowling by night in the witch’s service; witches changing themselves or others into animals; the use of ointment to effect the changes; nocturnal gatherings (Hindu witches, for example, flew naked through the air at night and consumed human flesh); the witch meetings taking place on Christian holy days, themselves replacements of the old pagan holidays (Hallowe’en, for example, replaced the Eve of All Saints’ Day, November 1, originally a Tuetonic fire-festival day); the belief that bees are evil spirits; the association of black complexion, clothing, or other objects with witches or evil spirits; witches using boats; witches leaving their bodies to roam about; the use of brooms by the witches, against the witches, or as a test of witchcraft (witches in some places could not step across a broom); cannibalism by witches; the association of witches with animals, especially cats, dogs, frogs or toads, lizards, snakes, mice, owls, pigs, horses, and wolves; witches having special power over children, and especially their propensity for eating children; the circular dance, often naked; the fear of seeing the witch dance; the use of crossroads as a place where demonic powers are especially strong; a conscious relationship with the Devil (much more emphasized in European witchcraft than in other cultures, which have little evidence of formal pacts with demons or worship of demons, though the Cherokees, for example, might sell themselves to evil spirits); the association of excrement with witchcraft; the evil eye; familiar spirits, often in the form of animals; exhumation of corpses by witches; green as well as black as a witch color (green was the color of the fairies); the use of hares or rabbits as familiars; the eating of human hearts; witches causing illness or death; the use of initiation rites (though here the variety of rites is so great that connections are hard to establish, and in any event the idea of formally giving oneself to the Devil and renouncing God is common only in European witchcraft); sexual intercourse between demons and witches; witches’ ability to become invisible; use of knots (ligatures) for various purposes including inducing impotence; the association of nakedness with witches are usually old; that they hold orgies; the idea that salt can be used to cfombat witches’ powers; the use of sticks (usually as magic wands-the notion of riding sticks seems to be fundamentally a European tradition); the sucking of blood; and finally the almost universal association of witchcraft primarily with women.[71]
