19 Times You Embodied The Sanderson Sisters

by Caitlyn Callegari

Oh, Hocus Pocus. How you do us so right, at any age. The movie may have premiered 21 years ago (WHOA, I know), but its underlying themes are still topical and pertinent. And by "underlying themes," I don't mean the whole brother-sister eternal sibling bond stuff they were trying to feed us with the Thackery and Emily and Max and Dani storylines. Everyone knows that it's perfectly normal and acceptable to hate your siblings until both old enough to share a beer and lament together. What I'm referring to is the eerily relatable Sanderson Sisters' and their genuine misanthropy and general discomfort with the state of affairs. And how their subliminal commentary still applies to just about anything and everything we feel today.

Yeah, I suppose there should be something disconcerting about so closely relating to a trio of centuries-old witches, but eh, whatevs. We R Who We R, right Kesha? Well, besides the whole "prepping to cook children for a hearty meal" thing. Definitely not that. But, it can't be too odd to feel this way if there's a BuzzFeed quiz to determine which sister you are. At least, that's how I reconcile it.

So check out all the ways you're just like the Sanderson sisters.
