All Souls' Eve. All Hallow's Eve. All Saints' Eve. Or Halloween.
While I am frustrated by the retail rush of the various holidays (as are a lot of other people), I do love when Halloween is here. It is the start of the family-time of the year.
It always seems to make Halloween a little more spooky when it falls on a Friday, as it does this year. Maybe it's just a way to extend the fun for a few extra days.
The sky is gray and a bit murky today, hanging cobweb clouds over the valley. Most of the trees are reduced to skeletons made of branches, twigs and trunks acting as spines. The dropped leaves look like blankets keeping the shriveled brown-tinged grasses warm against the drizzle.
Perhaps it is not comfortable weather for the all the little goblins, princesses (even all those from "Frozen"), devil impersonators, & wily witches to be running about collecting their treats. But, with a couple extra days to count, sort & devour their prizes, the chills of the cold & fright of Friday night should start them dreaming about next Halloween!
For those of us not dressing up to scare our neighbors, there is always the joy of hot chocolate, football & pets wanting to share our fuzzy throws. And that sounds like a fantastic way to spend a late autumn weekend. Or a Halloween weekend in which to recover from running about with all our trick-or-treaters.
So, here's to an enjoyable, even relaxing weekend! That certainly is how my Baby & Buddy are planning on spending the time.
But, even more so, happy Halloween, everyone from all of us!
