Wicked Walpurgisnacht

Wicked Walpurgisnacht!

This year’s holiday marks the 56th anniversary of the founding of the Church of Satan, and the 20th anniversary of Maga Peggy Nadramia becoming its High Priestess. It has been both my pride and honor to have this exemplary Satanic Witch beside me at the helm of this organization, sustaining the legacy of our founder, Anton Szandor LaVey, while expanding and enhancing his vision for the world’s first carnal religion into the 21st Century.  Maga Nadramia’s extraordinary leadership as High Priestess of the Church of Satan—the longest reign in our history for this eminent position—has made clear her impressive skills […]

Satanists note that traditions for this day stem from ancient seasonal celebrations which tend to include symbolism of the rising of dormant vegetation, and thus “rebirth” and “resurrection.” There is certainly much beauty in the early flowers now abounding here in the Haunted Hudson Valley, one of which is pictured above from our garden here at The Black House. Since we are free of any holiday obligations, we might choose to ignore this date altogether. Yet, we diabolists may […]

Remembering Magus Anton Szandor LaVey

Today is the 92nd anniversary of the birth of our founder, Anton Szandor LaVey, and we often take this day to fondly recall the transformational legacy of the founder of Satanism as a religion.
