Wicca is a Pagan religion that is widely practiced today. Although Pagan religions pre-date Christianity, the modern Wicca known today was introduced to the public in the 1950s by Gerald Gardner, a retired British servant.
Since then, Wiccan spiritualism has become popular and is rapidly gaining popularity and acceptance.
Wicca is primarily focused on the love for nature and its various elements, such as the earth, sun, water, and so on. This is not to be equated with the worship of nature (a common misunderstanding) but rather the celebration of nature which includes many nature-oriented rituals.
Followers of Wicca are known as “witches.” The male witches are referred to as “Wicca” and the female witches as “Wicce.”
