Witch Pegs

Witch pegs are in rural areas of the Ozarks, charms for keeping witches away from a home, made from cedar pegs with three prongs, driven into the ground in the path to the door. Folklore belief holds that the prongs are associated with the Trinity. It is considered bad luck to step on or disturb a witch peg.
