It is clear that Christmas time is not unrelated to the supernatural. In fact, telling spooky tales upon a Christmas night is a long tradition in many cultures and probably you have read yourself ‘A Christmas Carol’, the classical story written by Charles Dickens.
I still have not found verified information about this, but I have the feeling that séances gets boosted during Christmas time. Why do I think this? Because Christmas celebrations have an intense family component that makes us miss our beloved ones more than ever precisely at this critical moment. For many people Christmas séances are not the exception, but the rule.
At the end of the nineteenth century this was even more tangible, as spiritualism was all the rage. This was reflected, for example, in the second season’s Christmas Special of one of the most acclaimed British television series of all times: Downton Abbey. In this single episode a séance takes place, using a ouija board.
It seems like only yesterday when we started Decimononic as experimental project, but more than three years have gone since August 2010. Therefore, this seems a good moment to look back and set everything in order to beging working in new directions.
