Celebrate darkness this holiday season.
This bundle includes:
O Horrid Night (late 2016) & One Night in Salem (late 2017)
About One Night in Salem:
Throngs of tourists pack the streets from Derby to Essex. Costumed children and adults visit haunted attractions and browse t-shirt shops and street vendors’ booths. A veiled figure appears, and you catch her out of the corner of your eye, but she quickly disappears into the crowd… or perhaps into thin air? The night is filled with laughter and screams as the living walk shoulder to shoulder with the dead.
Halloween in Salem has expanded into a month-long celebration of all things creepy, but in four hundred years of history, October 31st has held many mysterious customs and dark events, lost and forgotten in the passing of decades. From the cursed Puritan settlers to the Great Salem Fire of 1914, and the whispers of war in 1812 to the story of a bullet hole in an alley on Gedney Street, travel through time, as ghosts mingle with the living, glimpsing the Witch City on the most important night of the year, October 31st.
About O Horrid Night:
Pristine, white snow shrouds evil things that revel in the longest, darkest night of the year. A fresh waft of peppermint brightens a monster’s foul breath. World weary ghosts have only until dawn to seek their retribution. The wind howls through the trees, or is that a choir of unearthly voices? “O Horrid Night” revives the tradition of telling ghost stories on Christmas Eve, when it is said that the barrier between the living and the dead is thinnest, and spirits may walk the earth. Such tales were in vogue in Victorian England (remember good old Jacob Marley), but the origins of the tradition stretch back in time, in celebrations of the Winter Solstice, Yule, and Sol Invictus. Gather your friends and loved ones together, get cozy with warm drinks or a roaring fire, and give them the gift of a spine-chilling ancient holiday tradition.
