handle', or has Bertie himself had too much Vinho collapso?
Halloween Safe Zone - Witches Cannot Pass
A Coven of Witches - Not just at Halloween
A coven is a group of 13 witches. Unfortunately for some of us, a
coven of witches can gather not just at Halloween, but at any time of the
year. Wife, sister, mother-in-law, aunties, you can soon rack up a

Psychic Predicts Campus Murders at Halloween This an
interesting phenomenon because it repeats every 3 years. The gist of
the myth is that a psychic on a radio or obscure T.V. show predicts that a
madman is going to murder students and Halloween. There is no truth in
