Trips And Traditions!

Stormy is back, and apparently has a lot to say! On today’s slice of magik pizza, we discuss the trip and attempt to make our way to the ACTUAL topic of the episode: Traditions! But until we do, please enjoy our cheesiness.. For if you make it through, you just might ‘find Jesus’.. Cha-CHING!

(If you are lactose intolerant however, we DO promise that some actual discussion actually happens. Maybe.)

Enjoy!~

8th annual Movie Marathon Slumber Party at the Hollywood Forever Cemetery; A Review!

“It doesn’t matter what people tell you. It doesn’t matter what they might say. Sometimes you have to leave home. Sometimes, running away means you’re headed in the exact right direction.”
― Alice Hoffman, Practical Magic

All too true! With today’s slice of Magik Pizza, your hosts Hannah and Stormy run off to the witchiest of witchy slumber parties, and we’re back to tell you all about it!

We took part in the 8th annual Movie Marathon Slumber Party at the Hollywood Forever Cemetery on Santa Monica Blvd, hosted by Cinespia! It featured classic witchy movies including The Craft, Practical Magic, and the Witches of Eastwick!

We hope you are entertained by the episode, and maybe have a Midnight Margarita or two! Enjoy!

H: Putting water outside for the animals, and as an offering to the spirits of the land. Our society controls water for it’s own ends like irrigation, household and municipal water use, and industrial uses, most often without much concern for the surrounding ecosystems. Only about 1% of Earth’s water is easily accessible freshwater. Find out where your water comes from and keep your politicians accountable! Water is precious. Share it and see who comes by to visit.
