Legends of witch trials and ghostly hauntings abound in Colonial Williamsburg, Virginia! At the center of Colonial Williamsburg is The Revolutionary City, a historic and educational recreation of life in Colonial Williamsburg during the American Revolution, which lasted from 1775 - 1783. The city looks and feels very authentic. American “Colonists” not only dress in period costume but wander the town in character, re-enacting scenes from life during the era and engaging tourists in 1700’s conversation! One such gentlemen approached us, eyeing Icy curiously “That’s a fine looking animal you have there, sir!” and proceeded to make us an offer to purchase her for 100 quid! We had some fun banter with him, explaining that our precious FurKid was NOT for sale at any price! Spending Halloween in Colonial Williamsburg is certainly fun and educational, but some of it’s history can be downright scary!

|Oh, Daddy, I told you not to practice witchcraft here! The Colonists do NOT like that!|
What made Icy act so weird?? Was it just the cold night air and the unfamiliar darkened streets? Or had she sensed something else, perhaps something from the spirit world that only she could sense? Hmmm…. I guess we’ll never know for sure.
