Vocab Builder: Halloween Terms

With the Halloween candy buzzing around in my brain, I offer you some words from the dark side.

Chthonic: relating to the underworld in Greek mythology (with thanks to johnemcintyre)
Samhain: November; the Gaelic Festival of Samhain is celebrated after the harvest season
Warlock: a male witch
Acheron: the river of woe in Greek mythology
Necromancy: black magic; the art of communicating with the dead

You can get the Vocab Builder every weekday by following me on Twitter.
