Quick Update – Holiday Lore Contest Reminder

Hello everybody!

This is just a quick reminder that we’ve got our Winter Lore Contest on right now, but time is running out to get your entry in.  We’re looking for information centered around the winter holidays, specifically local or family:

  • Practices
  • Customs
  • Traditions
  • Songs
  • Recipes
  • Stories
  • Crafts

Please make sure you tell us what area you are from (generally), and if you would like us to use your name on the blog/podcast.

You have until midnight (Central Time) on Monday, December 6th to submit your lore via blog comment or email, so don’t delay!  You can still get an additional entry if you tweet, blog, or otherwise spread the word about the contest and send us the link.

The prizes are:
Two Runner-up Prizes – Signed copy of Judika Illes’ latest book, The Weiser Field Guide to Witches

One Grand Prize – A Compass & Key Hoodoo Starter Kit, with a selection of oils, botanicals, curios, and other products for budding rootworkers.

We’ve gotten a number of excellent entries, but we still would love to get some more, so please submit before time runs out!

Thanks for reading (and sharing)!

-Cory

    First of all I wanted to tell you guys how much I love your pod cast and blog.
    I don’t know how relevant this is to lore but more like superstitions for new years. My grandmother is of African American, African English and Native descent Some of her holiday superstitions include: not letting anyone out of the house or enter until an unrelated male came into the house on New Years Day. We also always had Black Eye Peas and Collard Greens. I believe it was for good health and wealth.
    Lastly we had to wash all our clothing. I don’t remember why. I have to ask my mom. My Grand mom died earlier this year at age 89.

      Oops I meant to put Native American -not Native 🙂
