I'm just curious. I don't really have a religion right now and I've been looking into different ones. I am interested in Paganism and I want to know more of what it is about. Do you have rituals? Do you have one god or more then one or none at all?
I would deeply appreciate any information you can give me.
Thank you ladies!
Paganism is an umbrella term that covers a lot of very different beliefs and practices - so the answers to your questions vary quite a bit depending on who you're asking. Pagans are panthesitic, duotheistic, polytheistic, monotheistic, nontheistic -- it all depends on the individual path! The practices and beliefs of a Wiccan can be very different from those of a Hellenic Pagan, or an Asatruar, etc. You can find out a lot more at the Pagan Primer - it's a great intro to "what is Paganism" and to exploring some of the different Pagan paths.Â
I personally am a hard polytheist, honoring the Celtic and Norse gods, my ancestors, and nature and house spirits. I also practice what is known as kitchen witchery. This kind of "low magic" is everyday household workings that don't involve great ceremony or ritual tools.

As you will hear from many, Paganism is an umbrella term used for those whom do not follow a form of Christianity, Jewish or Muslim religion..
Many different religions fall under this... here is a link to get you started, there are a few groups here on CM that can help your search too...
Simply googling the word Pagan/Paganism will bring many sites to browse... if you like PM me any time...
I hope you find what you seek

Ohhh and to answer your other questions:
Do you have rituals? No... I don't really do much in this aspect.
Do you have one god or more then one or none at all? One or more Gods... for me I haven't nailed that down yet... for me it's simply "The Great Spirit" because I also have some Shamanistic beliefs. ;o)
