Halloween Costumes, Witches and Story

From the History.com site, Merilee Mulvey shares a post (with pictures) on the best costumes inspired by history. View it HERE.

With many of her family members from Massachusetts, Sally Daugherty discovered an article from the History of Massachusetts site, which may be of interest to others researching that area – The Salem Witch Trials Victims: Who Were They? The article states that “according to various sources, over 200 people were accused of witchcraft during the Trials”.  It provides an almost complete list of persons arrested, found guilty, found guilty and pardoned, escaped from prison, never indicted, and evaded arrest for witchcraft.  Read the full article HERE.

Dianne Carlson shares the following from the book A Small Fiction by James Mark Miller (@ASmallFiction).

“Do you have a magic spell to
return someone to life?” she said.
“No,” the witch said, “I’m Sorry.”
“Oh.”

“Why don’t you tell me about them”?
“Will that bring them back?”
“For us. For a little while.  Stories
are a different kind of magic.”
