Christian Day is a modern day Warlock living in the Crescent City of New Orleans, Louisiana and is co-host of HexFest with his husband, Brian Cain. A practitioner of the ancient arts of Witchcraft—a spiritual path devoted to old world folk magic, healing, and veneration of the dead, Christian owns two occult shops in Salem, Massachusetts: HEX: Old World Witchery, dedicated to the practices of Witchcraft, Hoodoo, and Conjure, and OMEN, a psychic parlor and Witchcraft emporium which features a staff of gifted psychic readers. In 2012, he also opened a Hex shop in New Orleans, where he now lives. Each October, Christian hosts Festival of the Dead, an annual event series in Salem that includes such popular events as the Official Salem Witches’ Halloween Ball, an Annual Psychic Fair and Witchcraft Expo, and an authentic séance. Among his many media appearances, Christian has been featured on The Travel Channel's Ghost Adventures, Showtime, TLC, MSNBC, Biography, Dish Network and in The Chicago Tribune, The Wall Street Journal, The Boston Globe, The Boston Herald, CNN.com, USAToday.com and, of course, The Salem News.
