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 […]

Beaster blossom at The Black House.

Eggscellent Day!

Today, Christians celebrate their well-worn myth of a savior risen from the dead. Some neo-pagans esteem the relatively obscure female deity, Ēostre. 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 […]

Hail Anton Szandor LaVey!

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. He was truly a unique man, and several recent works offer insights into his thoughts and personality that you might want to peruse: WE ARE SATANISTS: The History and Future of the Church of Satan by Magistra Blanche Barton Anton LaVey and the Church of Satan: Infernal Wisdom from the Devil’s Den by Magister Carl Abrahamsson Anton LaVey – Into the Devil’s Den a documentary by […]

A Tulip at The Black House

Exquisite Equinox!

Many Satanists mark today’s seasonal pivot point, feeling simpatico with our splendiferous homeworld’s continuing seasonal cycles. In the Northern Hemisphere, Spring arrives, succeeding Winter’s torpor with a renewed, verdant surging. In the Southern Hemisphere, Autumn soothes after the scorching Summer months. Here in the haunted Hudson Valley, Winter has seemingly, at last, let go. The bulbs have awakened, pushing their way into the stimulating sunlight, delighting us with their vigor. Always such a joy when our garden revivifies!  John Knowles Paine (1839-1906) was one of the first American composers to be recognized for his large-scale orchestral compositions. Born in Maine, […]
