What is a Spirit Ball?
A spirit ball, also known as a witch ball, is a hand-blown glass sphere traditionally used to ward off evil spirits and negative energy. The origins of the spirit ball can be traced back to the 17th century in England, where they were commonly hung in windows to protect homes from malevolent spirits.
Over time, the meaning of the spirit ball evolved to symbolize love, unity, and positive energy. It became a popular gift exchanged between close friends and family members as a token of affection and good fortune. The recipient of a spirit ball was said to receive protection and good luck, as well as a reminder of the bond they shared with the giver.
In the modern day, spirit balls are often used as decorative items in homes and gardens, and they are available in a wide variety of colors and designs. Many people still view them as a symbol of friendship and positivity, and they make a thoughtful and meaningful gift for special occasions such as weddings, birthdays, or graduations.
Whether you believe in the spiritual properties of the spirit ball or simply appreciate its aesthetic value, there is no denying its long and fascinating history as a symbol of love and friendship.
