Halloween is the time of year when the shades of the dead whisper from forgotten places and spirits walk among us. The Witches of Salem honor this time with Festival of the Dead, an annual event series that explores death’s macabre customs, heretical histories, and strange rituals. Presented by Salem Warlock Christian Day and hosted by the foremost authorities on the spirit world, Festival of the Dead beckons guests to step through the veil into a realm where spirits await.

Festival of the Dead explores death’s mysteries through events that investigate the favored and forbidden ways in which people have honored, celebrated, and secretly delved into life’s inevitable destination:

Who owns the land? Only the land knows. We mortals are passersby, and our lives are but a brief moment in the great span of time and space. We are born, we live out our lives, and most of us do the best we can with it, but the wind is forever, and the rivers flow forever to the sea, and all the seasons of the weathers will come and go after we are gone. But the Earth endures, the Earth is eternal" - Earl Hamner

I went last year to Salem in October. I had a great reading at the Psychic Fair and attended a workshop given by Lori Bruno. I also visited Omen and Hex, the stores run by Christian Day. It was a great time. Salem is truly alive in October.

Since I live in France I can't visit every year. I will be returning in 2013 for the festival, though. New England is a great place to visit at this time of year, with the Festival of the Dead, the changing of the colors of the maple leaves, and the little, charming villages.
