More Episodes

 Be warned that traditional Halloween traditions may be a bit disturbing, but I left out the nasty stuff. This spooky episode shouldn’t leave you sleepless.

We continue the exploration of how pagan traditions were subsumed into Christianity, and how even some Christian traditions began to be viewed negatively after this association was created.

We also finish off with a few fun traditions of regions like Brittany as we say goodbye to this particular book.

I’ll need to find other Halloween Stories to help you sleep next year.
