My neighborhood has been getting spooky, creepy and harvesty over the past few weeks. I don’t have a yard to decorate but always delight in seeing the lengths others go through for this holiday.
Step up on these ratty stairs:
Are you interested in trick or treating here?
Looks like a ‘warm’ welcome here!
Arachnophobes need not stop by.
Or you might end up like this:
You never know when you might bump into an old soul.
I dare you to cross this front yard!
This real cemetery is located in Rhodes Town, on Rhodes (Greece).
Or you can hitch a ride from this guy.
Some friendly ghosts will light your way.
My “creepy movie night” will consist of the Corpse Bride and The Nightmare Before Christmas by Tim Burton.
I don’t subscribe to the scary or occult aspects of the holiday, but like to ponder the communal and harvest aspects of Samhain.
As much as I like to dress up, The last Halloween party I went to was more than a decade ago, and my last dress-up as a flapper has been a few years as well. Trick or treaters don’t come by this corner. 🙁
I hope you enjoy this time of celebrating the bountiful harvest and preparation for gatherings around the hearth.
