#atozchallenge – Z is for Zagaz, bringer of disease

 

It brings disease to the young and innocent.

At the end of the list, the finish line for this challenge, we have the Zagaz. This Moroccan spirit was responsible for bringing disease to newborns. He brought about one of the most common and tragic illnesses of his time, a form of tetanus which claimed the lives of many young babies.

 

That’s the end of this blogging challenge! It’s been fun, spooky, and darkly inspirational!
