A witch? A deity? Who is Baba Yaga?

A hut that is constantly spinning? A witch that doesn’t fly by broom? Meet Baba Yaga, a creature associated with dark powers and often accused of eating children. Nothing new here, but what about her god-like traits? Is she evil? Is she a guide?

I believe Baba Yaga represents a ritual of the passage of young women who are about to get married and they have to prove themselves ready to be wives.

    Ha. I have a Ukranian best friend who was born on Halloween. 🙂 She uses that word “Baba” a lot and another one I can’t think of right now.
