Halloween – Salem, Massachusetts

In celebration of the upcoming season, I’ve decided to dedicate this site to the best places to experience the magic of Halloween and there’s no better place to start than Salem, Massachusetts.

Let’s get the major drawback out of the way first. Salem is one of – if not <em>the</em> – prime locations to celebrate Halloween, so expect anything within the city limits to be booked solid well in advance of October. That being said, this guide would be all but useless if I didn’t include a few interesting places to stay.

First on my list would have to be The Inn on Washington Square. The room rates range frome $100 (The Common Room) to $225 (The Honeymoon Suite) and there’s a two night minimum on all weekend and Haunted Happernings stays, which makes it one of the more expensive Bed and Breakfasts I’ve looked into. However, not only has it recieved great reviews, its genuinely haunted and is an ideal spot for the vacationing ghost hunter. For more details, see The Inn on Washington Square</a>.

For those interested in a little less kitsch, The Salem Inn  – comprised of three historic homes and “centrally located in the heart of historic Salem” – may very well be the place for you. Prices range from $190 (Captain West House) to $350 (Peabody House).

Again, since its a little late in the season, your best option would be staying in nearby Danvers, MA at Extended Stay America Boston – Danvers (5.21 miles from Washington Square). Their average daily rate is $91. Danvers is most widely known for its association with the 1692 Salem witch trials. The house of one of the convicted “witches,” Rebecca Nurse, is still standing in Danvers and can be visited as a historical landmark.

Throughout October you can take part in “America’s most exciting Halloween Festival”, Salem Haunted Happenings. In its 28th year, Haunted Happenings kicks off October 1st with the Salem Chamber of Commerce Grand Parade and ends October 31st with  The Reality Bites Costume Ball at the Hawthorne Hotel.

Also throughout October is the Festival of the Dead, “an annual event series that explores death’s macabre customs, heretical histories, and strange rituals”. Highlights include:
<em>The Retro Zombie Ball 
Spectral Evidence: Ghost Hunting 101
The Annual Psychic Fair and Witchcraft Expo
Death and Rebirth: Ritual Transformation
The Vampires’ Masquerade Ball
The Mourning Tea </em>
and
<em>Messages from the Spirit World: Salem’s Only Authentic Séance.</em>
The Festival ends on October 30th at the Hawthorn Hotel with “the world’s most exclusive Halloween event”, <em> The Official Salem Witches‘ Halloween Ball</em>. For more details, visit the Festival of the Dead.

Now would be a good time to mention (to the aspiring paranormal investigator) that the Hawthorne Hotel is also supposedly haunted. In fact – as you probably suspect – there are tons of haunted locations in Salem, including Gallows Hill, The Ward House and Saint Mary’s Cemetary. For more locations, check out Shadowlands Haunted Places Index.

As you can see, Salem is filled with places for spook-tacular adventures (sorry…I couldn’t help myself) but please remember, infamous footnote in history aside, there’s more to “The Witch City” than ghosts and witches, including (but not limited to) the oldest National Historic Site in America, Salem Maritime National Historic Site.

Halloween Witch
If I skip Halloween 3: season of the witch and go to Halloween 4, will i not understand something?

I don’t want to watch the rest of Halloween 3: season of the witch.
Its really boring. I want to go to the movie with Michael Myers still in it. If I go to number 4 will I not understand something?

No you won’t miss anything because the 3rd one has nothing to do with any of the them nor is Michael Myers even talked about in the 3rd one. No one really knows why the producer of that movie made it with no Michael Myers. I discarded it from the Halloween movies.

Witch Black

Witch Black
Why do people sell, buy and own books on black magick if it is forbidden? (Witch Question)?

The Wicca Rede:
If it harm none, do as you will.

All Witches must follow this simple rule but why do some own Books on black magick and the dark arts?

I have seen a few witch shops that sold some books on destruction, black magic and dark powers that had its own section.

I have also seen good witches owning web pages, books, and courses on black magick.

Why use black magick?

The Wiccan Rede is not a rule … it’s more like a guideline.

Knowledge is good. So, even if you never plan to do “black” magick (magick just IS, it is neither black nor white) it is good to have knowledge of harmful/destructive/manipulative magick, because knowledge is power. Sometimes you are required to fight back magickally, and taking on the karmic debt is worthwhile.

Witchcraft isn’t all light and fluffy, we have to learn to work with the darkness as well as the light. As someone else posted, there needs to be a balance.

There are a lot of historically important books about Witchcraft which would be considered by many to be “black magick.”

Also, not all Witches follow the Wiccan rede — it’s just for Wiccans.

Having said all that, books of black magick spells are nearly always useless and will give you a lot more trouble than help, because it’s ones INTENT to cause unnecessary harm that causes karmic debt .. it doesn’t even matter if the spell is real or effective.

Another thing to keep in mind is that Witches are usually not in favour of banning any sort of book. It’s ones choice to buy a book or not, so we’re not going to forbid (and how would we, anyway?) publication of “black magick” books.
