I don't have a story that would make others laugh, but I do have a story about what powerful magic laughter can be.
I have been a solitaire almost continuously since I discovered wicca, but there was a brief period in high school when I was a part of a very small coven - there were three of us. We would gather outside maybe once a month, kind of near full moons, and perform little rituals - mostly consisting of calling the quarters, doing guided meditations, and smiling nervously at each other. None of us were very good at ritual choreography, we never even wrote any kind of outline about what we wanted to do - we just went out, lit a small fire and some candles, and went with it. One night, we had finished calling the quarters and were coming out of a guided meditation to the usual awkward silence. We sat there for a moment, looking at each other and then gazing into the fire, and suddenly, uncontrollably, we all burst out laughing. For no reason, really, but we laughed, as only teenage girls can, for at least 15 minutes before we could look at each other without cracking up again. And then, by silent consensus, we closed the circle and went to get late-night snacks. We had acheived, in a way we never had before, total rapport with each other and total abandonment to the joy of the universe. Celebration, worship and magic, without a word spoken. I have never since been a part of any ritual quite so refreshing, energizing and powerful.
Laughter is good medecine, as our some of our Native American compatriots might say; it is a very powerful magic.
Love, laughter, and blessings,
