Halloween Costumes

Aye, it’s the night before All Hallows’ Eve. When I step outside into the nippy night air, goose bumps and shivers raise my hair. The sky is clear; and there is a mysterious sliver of moon in the moody sky.

On this calm night I go into my kitchen lair and settle down with the scent of pumpkin spice in the air. With hands on the keyboard and eyes on the screen, I conjure up images of Halloween.

I’ll begin with a photo I have from my youth in 1978, an image of my sister and me in our Halloween costumes handcrafted by my mad mum. I’m the witch – she’s the angel.

Mirror, mirror, magic ball – what’s in our forecast for next fall? Will it be monsters, mummies, zombies or bats? Bacon and eggs, or big funny hats? Something blue bought on sale? Only time and patience will tell.

Best wishes for a safe and spooky Halloween!
