Keep your hands off Satan's Nuts!

 


This September 21st avoid gathering nuts...
It is Devil's Nutting Day and he doesn't take kindly to people handling his produce.
If he catches you with your hands on his nuts he will send you mad or drag you to hell.

Also girls if you don't want to get a bun in the oven for god's sake don't go nutting. According to lore a good nut harvest will lead to a crop of unwanted bairns. 

Check out the Nutting Song for further important info...

Stay Healthy with "Children in the Corn"!

 


This Situa (Ancient Incan Festival) ward off the diseases of Spring by mixing cornmeal with a little of your children’s blood! Then eat it, spread it on your skin and paint your walls with it!

“Children in the Corn - It’s good for what might ail you!”

When you have finished the emperor of the Incas will send four noble Incas running to the north, south, east and west to chase away any remaining evil spirits that the cornmeal hasn't sorted out.

Happy Beheading Saint John the Baptist Day!


Thanks John the Baptist!

Today you will find true love if you squeeze the leaves of St. John’s Wort and they bleed red. This is all down to the FACT that the juice from Saint John’s Wort IS the blood of John the Baptist shed during his beheading.

It's over Swithun! Put that cloud down!

 

The reign of Saint Swithun is finished.

The 40 day tyranny of his weather curse is over.

Saint Bartholomew has taken the weather from his hands and now all bets are off.

He'll be back next year, but for now we can expect 10 months of unpredictable weather, unlike the last 40 days of course.

Happy HARMONIC CONVERGENCE Day!


According to the art historian Jose Arguelles’ interpretation of the Mayan Calendar the alignment of celestial objects* (on august 16th 1987) was expected to herald the start of a five year period of peace** and heavenly cleansing. This would prepare the way for a visitation by other worldly beings.***

New age enthusiasts joined together at specially selected sites around the world (Lake Titicaca, Ruins in New Mexico) ready for rebirth.

*The planets did not align as expected.

**There wasn’t a period of peace.

***No-one came to visit.
