Such a great company overall. I ordered a few things because it was my birthday and did not expect them so quick! I had accidentally chose the wrong shipping method. I didn’t realize until someone in customer service reached out to me. But by the time I saw it they had already solved the problem and shipped my package with the correct method. It’s great to know that they will take the time to reach out to me as well as take the problem in their own hands and solved it. When I recieved my package, everything was in a box inside bubble wrap envelope. It just goes so show that this company cares that everything makes it to you as safe as possible. I am blown away with the amazing service I got. Even on the receipt you can tell everything was double checked to make sure you have the right order. I even got a complimentary crystal with my order. I did not expect it at all!!! Such a sweet touch to finish this. I recommend 100% I would but higher than 5 stars if I could

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.
