Pigs

Yep pigs are what I’m going to talk about today.

Killing a pig on October 17 -the feast day of St. Ignacius- and smearing the pigs blood on your body will keep vampires away from you.
Smearing pig lard on the corpse is believed to keep it from becoming a vampire.

Why?
Wallachian lore says vampires prefer to shape-shift into a pig.

Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

Today is St. Patrick’s Day.  Happy St. Patrick’s Day!!
A day we celebrate Irish culture.
We wear green as not to be pinched and hope someone forgot so we can pinch them.
Leprechauns and Shamrocks decorate windows.

Some of us celebrate the feast day of the Saint the day was named for. Attending mass and reciting prayers.

Whichever way you choose to celebrate, by bowing your head or rising your glass.

I wish to remind you of those Irish who desire your blood.
