Come out to McDougall Cottage on October 19 7-9pm as historian, Joanna Rickert-Hall, takes us on a journey through some of the most notorious Witch Hunts in Scotland. At a time when people believed that witches could cure ailments and also cause deadly harm, fear controlled daily life in Scotland. Perhaps more interesting is the fact that women were not the only ones who stood accused (or as accusers). No one was immune to suspicion and even children joined the ranks as both accusers and victims of the Great Scottish Witch Hunt that took place between the 16th-18th centuries. How did it start and what was the outcome? Was it the work of demons or fairies?

An elf named Bob is banished from the North Pole to learn a lesson about co-operation.
Because of his bad attitude, Santa sends him to a small town to help with a Christmas Pageant. Here Bob is faced with bumbling amateur actors who are doing their best to put on the best darn
Christmas show their town has ever seen. Hilarious comedy to put everyone in the holiday spirit.
