Salem, Massachusetts is famous for its open embrace of all things demonic as both a tourist attraction and a way of life. Most people think nothing of it, in spite of the fact that the Bible warns against it.
In a story coming out of Massachusetts that has surprised and shocked the town, the mayor posted a photo of a building and a light post which has what appears to be an angry face appearing in it:
As if Salem wasn’t scary enough, Halloween, it seems, has arrived in the area early this year.
On Wednesday, Salem Mayor Kim Driscoll came across a spooky sight. In a tweet, she shared a picture of what looks like a man’s grimacing face trapped inside the glass case at the top of a lamppost.
“Anybody else see a face in this light?” Driscoll asked on Twitter. “…Totally eerie, eh”
The creepy image looks like a face with a furrowed brow and a mouth in the shape of an “O,” scowling at the people below.
The photo was taken outside the J. Michael Ruane Judicial Center, at the corner of North and Federal streets, according to a city spokesman.
Perhaps it’s the spirit of a ghost trapped in the glass for all of eternity. Or maybe it’s just the light from the overcast sky shining down into the object, playing tricks on the eye.
Whatever it is, people instantly sided with Driscoll. One person who responded to the mayor’s tweet said they could clearly see it, and thought it looked “Voldemort-y,” a reference to the evil foe and master of the Dark Arts from the Harry Potter novels.
Definitely. Yes,” the person said of the picture. “Doesn’t look too happy either.”
If such a thing were to appear in any other city in the region, it would be easy to scoff at the face as comical, if not just plain odd.
But this is Salem, after all — home of the infamous witch trials and host to one of the largest Halloween celebrations in the country.

There is a God and and afterlife.
This life is but a short duration in the realm of eternity.
There is a real spiritual battle that wages around us that, while for the most part remains unseen, is sometimes allowed by God to manifest itself so that men might see the reality that lies behind the veil of this life which will be lifted upon death.
Christ is real, and so are His words. He is the Way, the Truth, and the Life, and nobody comes to the Father except through Him.
Just a reminder.
