It was amazing!  "Witch" almanac you need in your life is a highly personal choice and I am certain the author Friday Gladheart understands how truly magickal your plans can be! :) Whether you love having fun while planning your next Sabbat celebration or just jotting down a quick note, this Almanac is accurate and makes my spirit sing. :) This is the most lovely little gem on my desk now, especially since the author signed my copy. :) There are hidden gems 💎 in it that are too much fun and it has a companion website where I can access things in my Google Calendar. The companion website is chock full of bonus content, new monthly fun plus a membership to a pagan teaching website. I am SOLD! I especially enjoy the "What are You Fishing For?" and "Lunar Gardening & Wortcunning" info, as well as the "Almanac Moon Signs" in visual form on the Almanac's days. Interpreting "Theban Script" is easier now, too! 
I am in LOVE with Practical Witch's Almanac and all of the goodies therein! :)"

Bought it because the calculations are exact for my area and I wanted to stay alerted to eclipses, meteor showers, moon phases, fishing information, etc. I fell in love with the meticulous crafting and artwork, and obvious, genuine intelligence behind the data, articles, recipes and more. I'm not a Witch, but this is the most practical, beautiful, and interesting almanac I've ever seen.

User Review: Simply the best! After I translated the Witch's Runes in the back I could get the access codes to download full-size wall calendars from the website and get the iCal version of the almanac to import onto my phone. Definitely worth the cover price just for the online bonuses, but this is an almanac I will keep around long after the calendar pages are out of date. 

User Review: Just got mine in the mail and WOW. This is way more than I expected!!! So easy to use. The calendar pages are set up with lots of room for my notes, and everything is so beautiful. Obviously a labor of love.

User Review: The most usable and beautiful almanac ever! Everything you need for daily living plus information for astrological, astronomical, and spiritual events. Not only are the Sabbats and moon phases clearly marked, there are holidays for all major religions so you can coordinate with others who are not on the same spiritual path. Easy to read larger print than other almanacs, and the symbols are clear and simple. I cannot say enough about this amazing book. Keep your old copies for all of the recipes, DIY project, articles, and reference charts. No matter what year's edition you get, the content is timeless!

@johnnybfever Not only is it proper, it is beneficial to support the “arts”. I received this wonderful package today from @practical_witch. But wait, not only did I receive The 2019 Practical Witch's Almanac, there were surprises as well. With gratitude and appreciation.  You can sign me up for next years edition now. As described, regardless of a person's path, it has useful information and it can literally be used as a daily planner. I will share this little gem with my circles. Wonderful. Delighted I cross your path. LLL
