Christmas Witches

This week I’m doing an episode inspired by my friends Andrew and Chris at Cronk Art and Curiosities. They were recently traveling in Europe, Italy in particular, and ended up at Christmas Market. As their story goes, they were wandering the stalls and they came across this table of nutcrackers and santas and at the end of the table were a bunch of witches and they had to buy me one. I lost my mind and got really excited for my little La Befana so I thought a fun holiday episode about Christmas witches was called for. I’m going to tell you about Gryla, Frau Perchta, Holda, Grye-Carling, and La Befana. 

So lets get into shall we? Grab yourself a cup of tea, make sure the doors are locked and the sage is close by. I have a story to tell you.

Warning some graphic disembowelment will be discussed! 

Haunted Dolls finale with Raven's Dark Dolls My Haunted Life Podcast

On this week’s episode I have my darling friend Bekah from Raven’s Dark Dolls. She is an artist that takes old dolls and puts a spooky twist on them. In her travels she has come across more than a few spirited dolls. We talk about the why, what to do with a doll spirited by a dark entity, and so much more! So lets get into shall we? Grab yourself a cup of tea, make sure the doors are locked, and the sage is close by. I have a story to tell you. — Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/myhauntedlife/message Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/myhauntedlife/support
