Burning of the wicker man

Post by buttercup »

Just back from our local burning of the wicker man, fire walking, fire juggling & pagan ceremonies, very visual with it being pitch black here now at 5pm, i got a bit caught up in the activities & forgot about the camera, only taking a photo as we left, anyone else attend or have a ceremony tonight?

edit - pic too big will shrink in photobucket & repost

Seems I have heard of that..the Wicker Man. saw something on Television or something. I think I should do research and learn more.



On similar lines (well not really) I saw a special on television about the Mothman...a legend out of Point Plesant West Virginia. Rick used to live near there. An interesting legend..

i think on reflection that the image of how the child came out was quite possibly a sign that evil will always be within our midst & its how we choose to deal with it pinks, im sure she was a sweet thing really :-6

I'm terrified of moths as it is (don't laugh, I can't help it) so if I saw that bugger coming up the driveway I'd die on the spot!!!


Poor Spot - I'm sure he'd be most upset!

Edward Woodward fried up nicely in the Wicker Man movie.

(Loved him as Callan)
