Hello, Thank you for filling and sending my order so soon and with such care! I spied the box on my front porch today and took it inside with a smile. Undoubtedly this box was well secured by the taped ends and carefully placed box flaps. Inside, the newspaper was a delightful treat as it is something to recycle plus indicated a human touch. The oils and powder arrived intact, and the specially wrapped book did too. Not only this, the invoice was hand checked and then signed by two people. Awesome! I found the 13moons.com web site in the back of The Witches' Almanac Issue 36 Spring 2017 - 2018 and will definitely visit and purchase from this web site in the future. Thank You Again. Cheers, shirley

Night of the Witches
Folklore, Traditions & Recipes for Celebrating Walpurgis Night
by Linda Raedisch

"Spring has come to the northern forest. The evening wind blows cold as the breath of the frost giants. Just overhead, there is a sound like the rushing of crows' wings. Can it be that a coven of witches has flown over these woods?"

"On any other night, you would probably swear that there was no such thing as a witch - at least, not the kind that streaks through the sky on a broomstick with guttering taper and billowing cloak. But this is no ordinary night; it is the thirtieth of April, the eve of May. Tonight is Walpurgis Night."

The roots of Walpurgis Night reach deep into the Pagan past, and modern Europeans celebrate it with as much abandon as their ancestors. Learn about the sacred rites of spring and the thirteen herbs that correspond with the Night of the Witches. Discover how this "lost" holiday has changed from a lusty fertility festival to a children's night of fun and treats. Learn about brooms and how to make one, and meet a collection of old-time witches, from Ash Wives to Wolf Crones. This charming, impeccably researched book features a wealth of folklore and herb lore, plus original and traditional recipes, crafts, and activities.
