Day of the Dead in Witch City

Everyone comes on Halloween to visit Salem, but Nov. 1st it is really a ghost town. To take advantage of our fall foliage and all of the great things about Salem when the energy is high, spend the Dia de Los Muertos with us. Same great attraction, sights, and shopping; just there is no crowd. You will have the town almost to yourselves. That is right bring your family and friends to enjoy this magical day.


Prior to Spanish colonization in the 16th century, the celebration took place at the beginning of summer. Gradually, it was associated with October 31, November 1 and November 2 to coincide with the Western Christian triduum of Allhallowtide: All Saints' Eve, All Saints' Day, and All Souls' Day.[4][5] Traditions connected with the holiday include building private altars called ofrendas, honoring the deceased using calaveras, aztec marigolds, and the favorite foods and beverages of the departed, and visiting graves with these as gifts.[6] Visitors also leave possessions of the deceased at the graves. 


Greatly popular are the calaveras men and women. Skeletons people who go about normal life if they were still alive. Many tattoo shops find this a popular theme and also many women dress up with skull face and floral designs in gorgeous gowns. Why don't you paint up your face and don your favorite dress and join us walking through Salem from Nov 1st to Nov 2nd. In Peabody next door they will be having a Nightmare on Main Street party where they close down the main road and ask you to get dressed up one more time.



Scholars trace the origins of the modern Mexican holiday to indigenous observances dating back hundreds of years and to an Aztec festival dedicated to the goddess Mictecacihuatl. The holiday has spread throughout the world, being absorbed within other deep traditions for honoring the dead. It has become a national symbol and as such is taught (for educational purposes) in the nation's schools. Many families celebrate a traditional "All Saints' Day" associated with the Catholic Church.

So this time of year is not a one off, it is a festival that lasts from Oct 31st to Nov. 2nd. So come to Salem this festival season and do not go home till it is over!

Its Halloween in the Witch City


Come on by and visit the madness. We tend to get 100,000 people walking through our downtown all dressed up. People come from the surrounding towns and from all over the world to partake in Salem on this special night once a year! There will be several live performances on outdoor stages, a carnival, psychic fairs, a vampire from Salem's Lot, a Frankenstein Monster with a portable lab, and some spooky graveyards. Spirits walk the streets this night of the year, so be careful. They do become more visible and slightly stronger to weakened wills; so watch the amount of spirits you drink so they do not get into you...



The Witch House and Pioneer Village in Forest River Park, location of an old Native American museum and grounds designed by Fredrick Law Olmstead, offers ghostly tales with period actors either in an old 16,000's house or a 16,000's village center around a bonfire. One of my favorites.

Look for our local Brazilians, Halloween is a festival for them filled with mirth and lots of dancing. To avoid the crowds look for food within five minutes walk outside of downtown at Major McGleashes or Georgia's Pizza. great food, great prices, no waiting. Also check out the haunted parking lot where the Salem Ferry departs. This was the site of a haunted boat house which burned down. These ghosts will play with your cellphone or camera by displaying orbs, draining your battery, or displaying strange warning messages. Once they even tossed my cellphone 25 feet into an open manhole. Strange things do happen in Salem. Also check out the scrap metal sculpture yard in the parking lot. 



Also remember there is 3 miles of tunnels under your feet. To find out more about them and how merchant sea captains became politicians to shape the foundation of our country up to the modern day. From presidential assassinations, shaping the Constitution, our involvement with the Britain's dirty deeds, and our nations banking Salem has shaped it all. Take the Salem Smugglers' Tour to find out how. It will also tell you about the real murder behind the game Clue that happened in Salem. Visit www.salemtunneltour.com to book your tickets. The tour is based on the books Sub Rosa and Salem Secret Underground: The History of the Tunnels in the City by your tour guide Chris Dowgin.

There is so much to do in Salem, we hope to see you!

What is a Rune Reading?


 Runes are the old written script used in Scandinavia before and the after the Viking age. The were created around 1 B.C. and were developed from an older Greek alphabet. The first letter of any word in Old Norse written with the Runes holds the power.  Ur (the letter in the chart below next to U) stands for the strength of the auroch which was an ancestor of our modern bulls. So all words relating to strength or cows would start with that letter like rodeo, cowboy, and dairy would start with Ur in old Norse. Pulling Ur would relate to your strength or another person's within the question asked of the reader.

The Scandinavian alphabet was called the Elder Futhark (named after the initial phoneme of the first six rune names: F, U, Þ, A, R and K) has 24 runes, often arranged in three groups of eight runes called an ætt[2] (pl. aettir). In the following table, each rune is given with its common transliteration:

f f     u u     th,þ þ     a a     r r     k k     g g     w w    
h h n n i i j j ï,ei ï p p z z s s
t t b b e e m m l l ŋ ŋ d d o o

Another factor held within the Scandinavian frame of mind is that there is 3 aspects to our world: The Past, The Present, and the Future. Within their culture they called the three goddesses who govern these principles were called the Norns. The city Nuremberg is named after them. The sister who governs the future is called Skuld; our word should comes from her. They believed nothing was written in stone. A rune reading is much like algebra. A+B=C. If A is how you view the past, B is how you view the present they will add up to C which is your future. At any time you change your view of the past and change how you act in the present, you will change your future. So any Rune reading will only tell you what should happen. Like in quantum physics, observation changes everything; once you observe your past and present you have the choice to change your perception of the past and the way you act in the future. Then C is changed.

When studying the Runes, remember the definitions for each character that is less than two sentences is the most correct. Some books will write 2 pages of information about a rune like Ur, but it only means strength. In a reading it could refer that you will have the strength needed to find a new job.

There are many ways to cast a rune reading; no way is better than another. My favorite is to let the questioner pull their first Rune to get their energy into the question. Then I will continuing reading the Runes until I feel the answer was answered. Sometimes it is only a pause to get the questioner's input and I will continue again. Sometimes a single pull of the Runes will answer the question. Sometimes only 3 runes are needed to come up with the past, present, and future that are relevant to the question.

Old languages were used by merchants to keep track of inventory, tally sales, and for strategic planning to better business. Today the Runes might be the best form of divination for strategic planning. The Runic symbols apply to things that were found on a farm and how to run it for prosperity and happiness. So you can apply these principles to any in depth planning to take control of your life and pursue your goals. The Runes demand the questioner to become an active participant within their lives instead of being caught within a whirlwind of fate. So come to a Rune reader with a specific goal in mind with the questions you need answered to make that goal happen.
