It will be Halloween on the 113th day from today. Already I am feeling the creeps (in a good way) about what is upcoming for this season’s revels. Whispers of shops displaying their seasonal goods, of possible costume choices that will need to be arranged or assembled, of annual stops at local “haunts”, of themes and scenes, tastes and treats. Halloween falls on a Monday this year and while that means a big weekend to distort, display and discover, it also means five weekends to prepare! Yay for the bit of extra time, something always so looked for by Haunters and those extra days will certainly be put to good use. Time for me to start dragging out boxes and designing variants for outside decor – but its a wonderful problem to work on. Perhaps something really simple? Maybe something literary? Throw a party? Go to one? Both? Whatever Halloween 2016 ends up being, I know it will be filled with everything I can’t anticipate – that is the yearly treat I look forward to. The unexpected, that which is freely given by all of you Haunters out there. Good fortune this upcoming Fall to all!
