What is a curse, Hex, Jinx?
A hex is generally a spell or bewitchment. It is derived from “hexe”, a German word for “witch”, and comes from the folklore of the Pennsylvania Dutch. In folklore it can be good or bad, but now is generally known by its negative connotations. Hexes can be made for hire, with the witch being able to be paid for both inflicting a hex and for removing a hex.A jinx is the continual or repeated bad luck. It is usually the result of a fatal accident. One of the more famous jinxes comes with the Hope Diamond. In the 17th century Madame de Montespan, the mistress of King Louis XIV, owned the diamond and it is during this time that the stone is said to have become jinxed. She was believed to have conducted so called “black masses”. Over 100 years later, King Henry the XVI gave the Hope Diamond to Marie Antoinette. Ms. Antoinette loaned this piece to her friend the Princesse de Lamballe. Not only did both Princesse de Lamballe and Marie Antoinette get executed, but every other owner of the Hope Diamond has suffered a tragic demise.A curse is a malevolent spell that is purposefully done to inflict harm upon another. It has been a part of magic and alchemy since the beginning, and can also be done by Catholic priests. It is derived from “cursein”, an Anglo Saxon worse meaning “to invoke harm or evil upon”. Curses can be both spoken and written. Cursed objects can affect people with bad luck, misfortune, ill health, and even death.
