Lots of witchy, witchy news this week in paranormal news!
1)Yes, there are Bark Boxes for witches! (Sorry, but the first time I encountered subscription boxes of goodies, it was in relation to my sister’s dog – now I can only relate these to Bar Boxes.) Now I’m annoyed that I didn’t come up with this idea myself.
2) Two C.S. Lewis stories in the news this week — first, why was Turkish Delight the writer’s guilty pleasure, and second, a bit about the real Lucy behind The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe.
3) The skateboarding witches of the Bronx, who don’t seem to really be witches, but still, cool…
4) In an era where uppity women in India face real danger of being murdered for being a witch, one Indian witch is loud and proud about her practice.
5) Is the fear of ghosts contagious? Just ask SCIENCE!
