I bought a book for my daughter called 'The Daring Book for Girls'. It's really cool and has lots of fun stuff in it but there's a section on Slumber Parties where they describe a few games. This has opened up some questions for me...
The first game described is 'Bloody Mary'. I remember hearing about that game when I was a little JW girl and I was terrified! There are a few variations, but basically you go into the bathroom and turn out the light. Then looking into the mirror you repeat 'Bloody Mary!' anywhere between 3 and 13 times and something scary is supposed to happen.
The next game is called 'Light as a feather. Thin as a board'. You get a group of 5 or 6 people in a circle around someone lying on the floor. Everyone closes their eyes and places there forefingers and middle fingers under the person and then repeat: Light as a feather. Thin as a board and then the person supposedly levitates.
So, before giving the book to my daughter I decided to check this stuff out on Google. I really don't know what to think.
These two games along with Ouija and also Spoon Bending Parties seem to all be topics of conversation with various opinions but no clear answers on how they work, or if they work or what is really going on.
Since most of us have JW backgrounds, I am very interested in hearing your thoughts, experiences an explanations for all four games.
