Frightfully Fun

I love all things Halloween as long as they aren't too creepy.   So that leaves out all the gore and such.  

Ten things I love about Halloween :  

*Baby Ruths 
(the only time of year I indulge in them)

*Pumpkins and more pumpkins

*Young Frankenstein

*It's the Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown


*Watching the Trick or Treaters in our neighborhood

*The glorious colors in Chicago this time of year...I can't imagine Halloween without fall colors dancing on every tree limb

*IT corresponds with wearing my hand knit wool socks again

*Sloppy Joes or Chili

*Candy corn with cashews mixed in......

Knit talk resumes tomorrow!  
What do you love about Halloween?

Leaves crunching underfoot
An orange, full moon shining through the bare trees
Hayrides down country roads

Ditto on the full orange moon!
Falling leaves,
Cloud streaked skies,
Hot apple cider,
Caramel apples,
Kids in cute costumes.

All things pumpkin.
Pretty leaves changing on the trees.
Crunchy leaves on the forest floor.
Hot apple cider.
Black cats!

Halloween is my favorite holiday, I love everything about it, and Mr 18 year old turns 19 on Halloween. I had a Halloween baby, believe me it explains a lot about his personality.

dark chocolate covered marshmallow pumpkins, pumpkin ravioli, frost, hot tea, for many years our kids went to the annual T or T parade in the center of town, dinner was always hotdogs and cider donuts---YUMMMMM. The feeling the day after, November 1st has always been a great day to me, the ushering in of winter and the holiday season, time to get in gear and get prepared!!

I am not a Halloween lover--or even liker! I'm really a Debbie Downer when it comes to the candy giving and costume ooing and ahhing. Forgive me!! But wait--cashews with candy corn? Maybe I've found something to like about Halloween after all!

Toasted pumpkin seeds with plenty of salt and the smell of a candle burning in a freshly carved Jack o'lantern. Sipping a Bloody Mary wearing my witch hat while handing out the little paper bags of candy I fuss over making. The Day of the Dead skull earrings I bought in Mexico. Caramel apples on a stick-but most of all the nutmeg laced doughnuts my mother made every year and the feeling that with the sunset, a window opens for those who have passed before us and they are close to us once again.
