In which direction is someone moving when going widdershins?
Up and down
The term “widdershins” is an uncommon English word that describes a direction or movement of counterclockwise. The word was adopted in the mid-1500s to describe a movement opposite to the apparent clockwise direction (as seen from the northern hemisphere) of the sun traveling across the sky, which, at the time, could be considered evil or unlucky. The word originates from the Old High German widar, meaning “back” or “against,” and sinnen, meaning “to travel.” The opposite of widdershins is deosil, or sunwise, meaning “clockwise.”
The correct answer is Counterclockwise.
