Excellent First Impressions. This was the very first time I've ever ordered altar items online and quite frankly, I was nervous. The very night I ordered my items, I got an email saying they were shipped and given a tracking number. However I didn't even get the chance to track it because it came before I even expected it. Upon opening it, I was very surprised to find a personally hand written thank you note and the items I ordered, in perfect condition. It's always a little scary to order stuff online from smaller or less well known websites such as Amazon, but you'll also miss out on the opportunity to feel like you really mean something to your seller.I was very pleased with my purchase from 13 moons and will definitely be returning in the future.Blessed Be.

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.
