Halloween and the Supernatural!


Double, double toil and trouble;
Fire burn, and caldron bubble.
Fillet of a fenny snake,
In the caldron boil and bake;
Eye of newt, and toe of frog,
Wool of bat, and tongue of dog,
Adder's fork, and blind-worm's sting,
Lizard's leg, and owlet's wing,—
For a charm of powerful trouble,
Like a hell-broth boil and bubble.

The leaves have turned colors, there's a chill in the air, and down the street those little hobgoblins are just waiting. It must be Halloween and time for the Carnival of Genealogy Halloween and the Supernatural posts.

Jasia tells us that we have a lot of latitude with this edition. You may submit stories of haunted houses, ghosts, any superstitions, voodoo, stories of Halloween parties or traditions, trick or treating, good luck charms, curses.

Does a witch hang from your family tree or perhaps a dancing skeleton? How about a black cat?

Bring on your hauntings and horror stories, humorous and happy ones as well to the Carnival of Genealogy 34th Edition.

Start stirring that caldron, Jasia would like us to show'em genealogists don't just have a sense of humor, but a sense of the macabre as well!

Also, check out Jasia's post "FAQs About The Carnival of Generalogy," for all you need to know about submitting a post. First-timers always welcome!

Submit your blog article to the next edition of the Carnival of Genealogy using the carnival submission form or select the photo in the upper right hand corner of this page. The deadline for submissions is October 15th, 2007. Past posts and future hosts can be found on our blog carnival index page.

I love Jasia's post! It's not every day we get to read Shakespeare while checking out COG blogs.
