hex signPennsylvania Dutch Hex Signs are a form of old folk magick based on runic magick, but in a form that was created by German immigrants. They are used on barns and other buildings as a way to bring in good luck, protection, and positive energies. They are talked about in the book, Northern Magic, by Edred Thorsson. Wikipedia has more info on them. In Pennsylvania there survives a form of fold magick called Pow-wow. Many elements of Pow-wow magick hint back to older forms of northern magick, as that is it’s roots going back. You can buy hex signs from a place called Jacob Zook.
