ROMAN MYTHOLOGY

The Classical Gods of the Roman Empire...

LEMURES

Roman Demon

Ghosts of the Dead who come to torment the living.

They usually put in an appearance during May.

If this leaves you feeling anxious please don’t worry; by following a few simple instructions a haunting can be prevented. All you need are three black beans:

1. Arise at midnight with bare feet.
2. Snap your fingers and wash your hands three times.
3. Now pop the beans in your mouth — remove and throw them behind you. Don’t look.
4. Say the following words: ‘I throw away these beans and with them redeem myself and mine’.
5. Repeat nine times.
6. Now say: ‘Paternal MANES Go’ nine times.

It is now quite safe to look behind you.
