Hallowe’en Greetings From OGOM


Wishing you a spooktacular Hallowe’en evening!!!

We are just back from our Supernatural St Albans Halloween Tour which went down a real treat. Around 40 people engaged in our wonderfully weird history of witches, tortured martyrs, vampire graves, dragons, succubi and more. We are going to be running similar events regularly and making it a feature of what we do on the project so if you missed this one there will still be more opportunities to experience it and meet us in person in future:-)

You may have encountered some spirits but don’t forget that Hallowe’en is also a time to find (or test) true love. Why not try putting a black cat in a pumpkin shell and carrying a white owl on your shoulder to make sure true love endures…

Or put some spiders in your tea cup

If you still have not found true love send a lock of hair sailing into the air on a breeze. The place where the hair lands is where your true love is lying!

If you have already found true love but fear that your lover’s heart may grow cold you can do the following test to ensure your lover stays true….

Finally, make sure you invite some lucky black cats to share the evening with you…if they can sing or conduct a choir of Jack ‘O’ Lanterns all the better!

    Spiders in my tea cup?! Ahhh! Yucky. Hee hee hee. Although I did have a black cat crawl into one of the pumpkins I was carving years ago, of his own volition.

    Happy Halloween!
