Double, double, toil and trouble – It’s Halloween!!!2288
Wicked witches take to the air, haunted houses creak and rattle in the still night air, hollow skulls smile and wink, and the night is full of hissing kitties’s screams. Glowing pumpkins stare down the village green, naughty children ‘trick or treat’, the child-catcher swings his huge net hoping to catch a chocolate guzzling straggler.
Listen well and hear the witches’ chant:
“Double, double, toil and trouble, Fire burns and cauldron bauble Fillet of a fenny snake, In the cauldron boil and bake; Eye of newt and toe of frog, Wool of bat and tongue of dog, Adder’s fork and blind-worm’s sting, Lizard’s leg and owlet’s wing, For a charm of powerful trouble, Like a hell-broth boil and bubble….When shall we meet again, In thunder, lighting or in rain?”
