An honorary hag

Jael (aka Yael) wasn't wizened or particularly wise, but we're giving her a place among the holiday hags anyway. 'Cuz she's just scary.

For details on Jael, see the relevant Bible passage here, and read the Wikipedia page here.

I did enjoy learning about Yael...and yes, as usual, you have shared quite the image. :)
