Doorknobs and Broomsticks

Doorknobs and Broomsticks

After reading several stories by Nathaniel Hawthorne for grad school, I became intrigued by the Salem Witch Trials.  In the 1690s, a group of mischevious girls accused innocent citizens of witchcraft, and the town killed the supposed witches for their sins.  On our historic trip through Massachusetts, my family explored Salem, the town famous for these colonial witch trials and the setting of Nathaniel Hawthorne’s most famous books.


To our disappointment, the town has become more of a Wiccan Mecca than a historical memorial.  I liked the decorated Christmas doors more than I liked most of the tourist traps.



P.S. – Today I am cohosting Fiesta Friday with Suzanne from A Pug in the Kitchen!  Head over to Angie’s Fiesta Friday blog to see what our guests have brought to the party!
