091. Practical Magic: "My darling girl, when are you going to realize that being normal is not necessarily a virtue?"

October 31st, 2022

When thinking of the great Halloween movies Hocus Pocus, Halloweentown, or even Beetlejuice may come to mind. A select few are aware of the perfection that is Practical Magic, and ACOFAE cannot and will not be a casual fan of anything. Welcome to an island in Massachusetts where a family of witches has lived for generations. Men are accessories here and the woman are shining as they use and grow into their power. This is a movie about grief, acceptance of yourself and others, family, and sisterhood. IYKYK how ACOFAE feels about sisterhood, and this movie does not disappoint. Be ready to feel everything. Oh, and the movie ends on Halloween! Talk about being on theme.

"There are some things I know for certain: always throw spilled salt over your left shoulder, keep rosemary by your garden gate, plant lavender for luck, and fall in love whenever you can.”
