Do y’all remember the television show/movie Buffy the Vampire Slayer? Okay, I’m not going to ask what you thought of them, but the show does bring to mind the idea of hunting baddies of all ilk. (Of course my characters Caitlin and her friends are beginning to brush up on just that in my Antique Magic series) so…when I saw this article the other week about A group of teen girls performing exorcisms (while I completely disagree with their belief that Harry Potter instigates evil *sigh*), I couldn’t resist. 🙂 I had to share it with you.
Note the one girl wears black nail polish. I guess she didn’t get the message that at one time we were branded evil for doing so. 😉 Did I care at the time? Do I now? uh….no. Anyway, I hope you enjoy the article. Have a very…freaky Friday, my friends!
This may or may not qualify as “Weird” or freaky, depending on your point of view. Personally, I always find it kind of…odd when something I’ve loved…oh, forever hits the mainstream. So…Witches are fashionable now? Wow!
Since I include them in most every story I write, I think it’s a nifty development. What do you think?

For today’s freaky Friday, I found this topic and couldn’t resist.
Greenman, circa 1543
The Green Man’s huge in Celtic Mythology of course. Its fairy-like image is found on churches and buildings throughout England. Related of course to the natural vegetal cycles of the world (Spring is coming after all). Jethro Tull even honored him in their song Jack In the Green. (*pause for moment of fangirl worship*)
So when I found this guy’s article *points to link*, in honor of the *fingers crossed* coming spring (and Imbolc!) I couldn’t resist sharing it with y’all.

Can you see anything freaky and fairy-like? Can you see the Green Man in these photos??
