Barb and i had a revelation last night... and we think we might be the first to have thought of it...
Lucky charms is the perfect cereal for Pagans!!!
think about it, what does it have?
well, originally, it was
Clovers for earth (and plant magick/herbalism), moons for air (and astrology), stars for fire (and also astrology) and blue for water (diamonds could be stone magick or earth). Bear with me here, it's a tiny leap of faith at the start).
- Yellow moons
- Orange stars
- Green clovers
- Blue diamonds
Then they added pink hearts (spirit) and purple horseshoes (animal magick).
NOW, they've got hearts, moons, stars, clovers, diamonds, horseshoes...
the oats are shaped like bells (tho i don't see books or candles!), fish (kind of like an ichthus, which may have been a later attempt to pacify xian cereal eaters), clovers and xes (again, to pacify the xiana). Actually, i just now noticed that they are the same basic shapes as CAT FOOD.
- rainbows (color magick)
- pots of gold (cauldrons)
- red baloons (more air)
- shooting stars (more astronomy)
- and "magic crystal balls" - they change color in the center to show a picture when you put them in milk - i think the symbolism of a crystal ball does not need explaining!
well, this is just wierd...just plain wierd...
