Why has Halloween fallen through a crack in the darkness of most people’s minds? These days, a shadow lurking in a corner is simply that; merely a shadow and nothing more.
Gone are bobbing for apples at grannies house.
or, little boys and girls dressing like cats or a mouse.
No more laughing and scurrying from house to house.
They wouldn’t dream of being a giant pumpkin man
Or pair up two boys dressed like a van.
|I dressed like a cat for several years. But sadly this is the only picture of me dressed for Trick or Treating.....hard to believe!|
No more goblins dancing about, haven’t you heard?
Today if they dress up at all they’re Darth Vader or an Angry Bird.
No more telling scary ghost stories over bonfires
Or feasting on caramel apples and nuts, or other tasty harvest fruits-
Oh no! Haven’t you heard!
It’s “lights out” all across most neighborhoods on Halloween night!
Nobody opening doors to offer yummy delights,
Gone are the little goblins that went bump in the night
or dressed in ways, to almost frighten anyone, all through the night.
The pure magic of ghouls and black cats is out of sight.
I still enjoy seeing all the decorations and the warm lights hovering about each house !
Once we could be mad as hatters for one night-
Or wear our hair in a frazzle and cause others to beware
Of us all, as we played tricks with all our might
Oh how we loved playing truth or dare
Especially on Halloween night…
So, will you be out this Halloween Night?
Still partaking in that old childhood delight?
Perhaps you’ll bake a tasty soul cake just for the night.
And hold scared the tribute of the light
Knowing it brings abundant harvest to all
And pumpkin lanterns will lighten the darkness for all,
guiding us past cornstalks and ghouls on Halloween night.
Well for those of us who still dare to go out Halloween night!
May your autumn be merry and bright and all your days filled with delight!
What do you think is the most reasonable of all Halloween explanations?
"What kind of face does your pumpkin have?"
