About the Author:

Raymond Buckland's grandfather was the first of the Buckland Gypsies to give up traveling the roads in wagons and to settle into a permanent house. From his earliest years, Ray remembers listening to his father's and grandfather's tales of Romani life, and watching his grandmother read cards and tell fortunes. Ray is the author of more than fifty books on occult, magic, witchcraft, and paranormal subjects and is popularly known as "The Father of American Wicca." He lives in Ohio. Visit him on the web at: www.raybuckland.com.

Excerpt. Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.:

Pay Down the Devil

Romanian Gypsies have a tradition of paying off the devil at a wedding, so that he will not put the evil eve on the marriage. This is accomplished by the bride placing a silver coin under her left arm and holding it there, with her arm tight against her body, for the duration of the ceremony. Then, as she and her new husband leave the wed­ding site, she will allow the coin to fall inconspicuously to the ground. Anyone who later finds the coin will enjoy seven years of good fortune, they say.
