ON THE WITCHES' SABBATH EVERY ONE HUNDRED YEARS, THE
DEAD WILL WALK THE EARTH FOR ONE NIGHT. SHE SAID THAT
IT DEPENDED ON THE CIRCUMSTANCES OF THE STARS AND THE
FULL MOON FOR THE DAY TO BE DETERMINED, PREFERABLY ON
A SUNDAY. SHE REMEMBERED LEARNING ABOUT IT FROM HER
PARENTS WHEN SHE WAS A CHILD---THEY CAME FROM A VERY
SUPERSTITIOUS PART OF ITALY.

Submitter comment:

Micheline Caputo - deceased Grandmother. Housewife, Italian.
 I heard these things from my grandmother throughout most of my young adult life. She was a fantastic storyteller, and was a storehouse of all kinds of information.
