Review: Witchcraft and Medicine in Pre-Petrine Russia

I finally got around to reading this article, here on JSTOR, now. It’s really short, just about 10 pages long, and about 1/3-1/2 of that is footnotes.

Slavic Winter Season

We’re approaching that time of year (middle-end of December) where Veles is considered a focus on the “Slavic Calendar”. I love winter anyways–I’ve mentioned this before. It really is the best time of year in my opinion. Normally I don’t do anything super special or big, because I just don’t have room, time or space […]

Season Theme

The season time from October to Thanksgiving (including Halloween!) is spooky season. Which means fun trips and fun spooky-themed things to do. I went to Port Townsend the weekend my computer died (I am working on editing photos, so I might post some). Apparently, it’s super haunted, and I apparently stayed in a haunted hotel. […]
