Halloween Witches and More

Halloween

Bats are a huge part of Halloween.

Here are historical takes on the meaning of Halloween, Halloween witches, and how this night has evolved to the celebration it is today. Do you make Halloween part of your paranormal experience? What do you do to celebrate on October 31st? Do you believe in the paranormal, the possibility of ghosts and hauntings? Do you believe in the superstitions surrounding black cats? 

Black cats reveice a bad rap.

In many parts of the United States, no adoptions are allowed during the month of October based on the history of the poor cats being used in Satanic rituals on October 31st. I lived in Miami, Florida from 1998-2005 and the police department actually had a Voodoo Squad that routinely had incidents with people involved in these activities. Animals were killed for such practices. Halloween is definitely not just about candy!

A medieval myth tells us that Satan turned himself into a cat when meeting with with witches. Today, black cats are not always viewed as bad luck. In Ireland, Scotland and England, if a black cat crosses your path, it’s considered good luck. I’m glad that the line of thinking has changed in some parts of the world!
