This was my first year that I read any of the Llewellyn almanacs and I think I'm going to pick up the one for 2013 because some of the tips are superbly simple.

Format: Paperback
Let my start by saying that I do enjoy this book and I will probably be getting next years Witches Companion as well however there is a very, very big problem with this book, IT IS NOT AN ALMANAC!!! Now for me personally this is not a problem as I know what this series of books is having bought it last year to and I actually prefer the information and articles in here to a almanac, however it is a problem that the cover say almanac, the subtitle of the book say almanac, this is not an almanac and mislabeling it is just going to annoy customers who are looking for an almanac and loose Llewellyn sales from those customers who are looking for what this book is, an anthology of articles on everyday Pagan life. In essence this book is a magazine in book format with short articles written by a number of well known Pagan authors, and as such is is a good book, this is however not an almanac, so please Llewellyn for the love of everything holy check a dictionary and familiarize yourself on what the word almanac really means!

With any collection anthology book you will find some good articles and some not so good, most of the articles in this book however is quite good. Here is a list of the book's contents:

*Cannabis and the Environment--Basically an informative article about the very nature friendly material hemp and how that is not a drug even if it share the same scientific name as marijuana.
*Syncretism Versus Eclecticism--This is a good article on the difference between just mixing and matching whatever systems and path strikes your fancy and actually fitting elements from different paths neatly together.
*But You Don't Look Like A Witch--A very whiny piece about the horror of having some Pagan snot balls claim your cooperate look is not witchy enough, get over it.

Although this book is well-written and interesting. It is not an Almanac. It is very informative and fun but if you want a real Almanac-stick with the original Old Farmers!

Format: Paperback
This books is for all witchy people of Wiccan/Pagan religions, or those of you who are of other faiths, but like to read up on what's going on in the Wiccan community. This book is filled with lots of helpful essays and topics that are important to all witches, and these essays would even be helpful to the nonpagan as well.

I am Wiccan, and lemme tell ya, this book had some great ideas! This was my first year that I read any of the Llewellyn almanacs and I think I'm going to pick up the one for 2013 because some of the tips are superbly simple. One of the essays was how to incorporate magick into cooking - which is helpful, because, well, we all cook. Even if you hate to cook the tips in the essay will have you wanting to try out your hand in the kitchen.

Another essay is on how to incorporate your religious beliefs in your parenting skills. I'm not a parent, except to two cats, but sadly there isn't a cat parent PTO meeting at the local school. If I had children however, I know this article would be a go to for me.

I loved the Moon Void of Course data, it's super helpful in any working. Don't know what to make for the next Esbat or Sabbat? This has it covered with the recipes. Lots are with meat, so if you're a vegetarian, such as myself, you might have to change around some recipes. Some awesome veggie meals are included, of course.

Even though this is for 2012 the essays can be put to use for any time of the year, whether it's the end of this year or the middle of next.

Highly recommended for any witch of any age.

This little almanac packs a lot of information. It is especially helpful to those new to the craft or just wanting more information on just about everything. I have been reading it daily and loving it. It's a gotta have book!

This has very interesting facts in it. I actually love Llewellyn for this particular series! Between the Datebook and the Companion Almanac, you have easy, on-hand access to a wealth of info. It is always written in a manner that holds your interest, with out "dummy-ing" it up. I will buy one every year now, just like I have and will continue to, with the Datebook. They are as important to me on a daily basis as anything else to get ready for the day!

Purchased as a gift. Not quite what I hoped it would be. I had hoped it would be a date book or at least offer seasonal activity ideas. It didn't. Instead it was a collection of articles, interesting and well presented, but not what I was looking for. Excellent for those new to the craft and craft-curious. A very Wiccian leaning book but applicable to witches of other veins as well.

I was honestly hoping for more spellwork, or guidelines. It was sort of random, and I don't feel like it was for every day living. While I'm glad i have it, and i hope that I will be able to share what I learn -and will purchase the current version /next year's, it just wasn't what I was expecting.
