Hi fellow Postcrossers,

On Thursday 31-10-2024 we (Ilse/ Jaynillo en Mar127) are organizing a Halloween meeting in Oudewater.

Do you want to know, if you are a witch?

Visitors from all over the world have been coming to the weigh house in Oudewater for hundreds of years. They have themselves weighed on the scales from 1482 and receive a “Certificate of Weginghe”.

Centuries ago, people accused of witchcraft were deceptively weighed to low. As a result, they often ended up at the stake. Oudewater was known for a fair weighing process and clean weights. That is why Oudewater, as the only place in Europe, received the privilege from Emperor Charles V to issue certificates in his name. Because of this special right, no one was ever condemned as a witch.**

Gathering between 10.15-10.30 In front of Museum ‘de Heksenwaag

Programm (Dutch timetable)
10:15 gathering
10:30 postcards & booklets
Around 12:45 lunch
14:30/14:45 timeslot Museum ‘de Heksenwaag’
A museum guide will tell us (30 minutes) about the history of the witch hunt and the role of the Waag in Oudewater in this. We also obtain a ‘Certificate of Weginghe’, which you can use to prove that you are not a witch , ghaghaghaghaaaa….:mage::black_cat: :broom:

The group photo will be taken in the museum, (If you don’t want to be in the picture, no problem). Halloween dress up: hat/headband or something else, is appreciated, but is not mandatory.

We will lunch in https://eetcafe-lumiere.nl/
The lunch will be paid in advance.
Drinks and other servings can be paid for with a ‘tikkie’ at the meeting.
