TWH – The Wild Hunt team is taking a break today in order to gather with family and friends as the old year ends and the new one begins. We will return tomorrow to start the year 2018 with our popular feature Pagan Voices, followed by Pagan Community Notes on Tuesday. Then we will be back with a regular schedule of news and commentary.

The Wild Hunt team looks forward to yet another exciting year of covering the stories and subjects of interest to the collective Pagan, Heathen, and polytheist communities. The coming year promises to be an engaging one, and we will be there ready to “cover the cauldron” as our motto says.

Until then, we wish all our readers and supporters a very safe and happy New Year’s Eve, and much success into the coming year.
