Halloween Alert

Yes, it's only September, and yet I'm thinking forward to Halloween. This used to be my second favorite holiday - a close second to Christmas. I remember .... but before I get to that, let me give a heads-up. Sometime in October I'll put a Halloween flash story on my blog. I wrote it a few years ago and I drag it out this time of year, taking it down after the 31st.
 
So, I remember my Halloweens. The whole world, which was Denver, got very spooky about that time. The moon was a witch moon, the pale cloud fingers flew across the face of the moon at night - wooooooo. We had cutouts of black cats and witches in the windows at school and the costumes! Mostly our costumes were homemade except for the masks, covering only our eyes, and which had a special Halloween smell I can still conjure up at will.
 
After dinner we'd get dressed in our costumes with care, then pile heavy coats over them so we wouldn't freeze. Neighbors would invite us into their homes where we would take off our coats and display our wonderful, beautiful, scary costumes. In turn we'd get candy apples, popcorn balls and really great candy. Hoards of kids roamed the spooky streets under the witch moon. It was great. I'm sure there were real ghosts.
 
More on Halloween then and now in a future blog post. And watch for the story, it's coming!!  woooooooo.

Yes, a little early, but still a good post. I was fortunate to grow up in California before the masses moved in. It was warm enough to leave coats at home and dark enough to scare each other. Great memories!

I would like to see some of the interesting coats to see how much scaring it is in real. Whatever, I'm waiting for the upcoming stories which may be more interesting! Thanks for making me attracted at this ;).
