“When Valentine's Day looms on the horizon, many people start thinking about love. Did you know that the modern Valentine's Day, although named for a martyred saint, actually has its roots in an early Pagan custom?
This month has long been associated with love and romance, going back to the days of early Rome. Back then, February was the month in which people celebrated Lupercalia, a festival honoring the birth of Romulus and Remus, the twin founders of the city. As Lupercalia evolved and time went on, it morphed into a festival honoring fertility and the coming of spring. According to legend, young women would place their names in an urn. Eligible men would draw a name and the couple would pair off for the rest of the festival, and sometimes even longer. As Christianity progressed into Rome, the practice was decried as Pagan and immoral, and done away with by Pope Gelasius around 500 C.E. Recently there's been some scholarly debate about the existence of the Lupercalia lottery–and some people believe it may not have existed at all–but it's still a legend that brings to mind ancient matchmaking rituals perfect for this time of year!”- Excerpt from ThoughtCo, photography by Krist Mort.
I LOVE Valentine’s Day. What are your thoughts on it? -Dixie (@witchvoid)
This house is special to me. Years before I first moved to #Vegas in the early 90s, I came to this house regularly. It belonged to my maternal grandparents back in the day. So many happy memories were made here. Not sure who lives here now, but I hope, like my grandparents before them, that their home is full of #music, #joy, and #love. Oh, and this place is TOTALLY #haunted. #musicroom#creepybackroom

The mannor became infamous in 2015 when the two brothers who was running it was reported to the relevant authorities by a new member of staff for running the care home like a jail ,even failing to record the deaths of 3 patients so they could continue to claim there money to fund a lavish lifestyle ,the mannor house is now up for sale for £2.5 mil ,

Halloween Saints - ALT - Billy Butcherson Ladies' Long Sleeve Tee - 20% OFF with coupon code TRANSWORLD thru the end of February! Link in bio or ShopSinister.com!
As an artist who likes to draw and paint spooky things, I've mostly stayed away from depicting other people's characters. Then in the summer of 2015 I had this idea to do a series of portraits of characters that I like from movies and books centered around Halloween, and by mid-October I had completed 5. This is Billy Butcherson from the Disney Halloween classic movie "Hocus Pocus"; this is the "art only" version (there is a more elaborate version available in this very store!) This relaxed long sleeve tee combines the best of both worlds, proving that cozy can also be chic.
