witch tales

the small child wondered
which witch story scared her most 
but she loved them all

I live less than 20 miles from Salem, Mass, the historic site of the witch trials of 1692-3.  More than 200 people were accused of practicing witchcraft there. As school children, we all learned about these tragically unfortunate yet intriguing true stories, and we even visited the Witch's Museum and other related venues on school field trips.  Halloween itself is an amazing, crazy and fun event in Salem, with attendees in great costumes, behaving in character. And lots of witches in black 'flying' about.
