Beware May Eve





According to The Discovery of Witchcraft of 1584, May Eve ( Walpurgis Night) is the 
time you must guard your children against witches.




 " The Devil teacheth witches to make ointments of the bowels and members of 
children, whereby they ride in the air and accomplish all their desires.
 So if there be any children unbaptized or not guarded with the sign of the cross 
or orisons (prayer) then the witches may and do catch them from their mother's side 
at night, or out of their cradles...and after burial steal them out of graves and 
seethe them in a cauldron until their flesh be made potable."




To ensure this doesn't happen  place a crust of salted bread under 
the baby's pillow, also hang garlic and rowan around the cradle.
