Smoke Tree at The Black House

SUPERLATIVE SOLSTICE!

From our garden here at The Black House—pictured is the thriving smoke tree planted in tribute to Magister Joe Netherworld—we offer Solstice greetings to all in harmony with the Earth’s seasonal changes! In the Northern Hemisphere we embrace the longest day of the year as sultry Summer begins. Those in the Southern Hemisphere mark the longest night as Winter begins its gelid dominion.

Here’s to a splendid new season filled with indulgences galore! Beethoven‘s […]

Superlative Solstice!

From our garden here at The Black House—where our Chow Khan is enjoying the verdant grass—we offer Solstice greetings to all in harmony with the Earth’s seasonal changes!

Make Merry on this Superlative Solstice!

SUPERLATIVE SOLSTICE! The winter solstice is again upon we denizens of the Northern Hemisphere, and many feel at one with the cycling of the seasons on our beautiful home world. Some Satanists might feel alienated by aspects of the holiday hubbub, particularly those promoting Christianity, yet heathen trappings have long been the dominant décor. It is fact that the Christians lifted this holiday from the pagans, as Pope Julius I in the mid 300s inserted their pallid, mythical savior into prior earthy traditions which he failed to supplant. Jolly, round and white-bearded Santa Claus—who has come to signify wish fulfillment—seems inspired […]
