We’re still off for June, but in the meantime we manage to dig up some more true occult weirdness by way of our Infernal Dictionary, including wereoxen, Beau Bridges, and the secret ties between them.

Hi, first of all thanks for a fantastic podcast. I am relatively new to Satanism and found this thanks to my local group Noosa Temple of Satan who shared one of your posts on Facebook so shout out to my local community for pointing me towards you. NToS only do one regular yearly event, our Halloween Mas which has turned into a protest against the councils ongoing discrimination against us as a religious group, so finding you has brought some well needed Satan into my life around the year ???. Onto the theme of this bonus episode, as a Swedish-Australian I find it hard sometimes to get into celebration mode for the different seasons, the seasons here being the reverse of what I grew up with. Hearing you talk about Blakulla reminded me of how I used to celebrate Easter Thursday as the big Swedish Witches Sabbath, now that you have mentioned Blakulla I feel like I can bring this tradition back as a reason to hold a Satanic ritual, yey! To explain, the witches flight to Blakulla (BTW it just translates to Blue Hill and there are several different places in Sweden that claim to be this mythical gathering place for unholy feasts) is celebrated in Sweden much like a Swedish version of Halloween. On the Thursday before Easter children dress up as witches, in brightly coloured headscarves and aprons or top hats with feathers and bright make-up and go around with a broomstick and cauldron or copper kettle, collecting candy from the neighbours. I usually celebrate the day by holding a dinner for some friends but I have fallen out of this practice of late, with covid and everything. Now I feel motivated to bring this back as an official Personal Satanic holiday, thanks ?.
