So, what is “folk magic,” anyway? It is related to the term “folklore,” which generally refers to cultural expressions, such as narratives, jokes, beliefs, proverbs, legends, myths, music, songs, dances, costumes, food, and festivals, through which individuals and groups shape their regional beliefs.
Folk magic refers to a wide range of magical beliefs and rituals that were usually performed by these normal, everyday people to address community evils such as healing the sick, giving love or luck, driving away bad forces, locating lost items, delivering good harvests, granting fertility, and reading omens. Plants, coins, nails, wood, eggshells, twine, stones, animals, feathers, and other ordinary materials were employed. In some aspects, folk magic can cross over into what is known as “folk religion.”
