When a friend asked, "You got any plans for Halloween?" we were instantly bewitched.
"A Halloween party?! We'd love to come!"
Dan and I haven't been to a Halloween party in ages. And I love Halloween. I mean...I really love Halloween. I love the colours - pumpkin orange with an inky black sky. I love it's smell of autumn leaves, and apple cider, and Tootsie Rolls. I love the witches, the vampires, the zombies and the ghosts. And I especially love greeting the children at the door as they come trick or treating. You know the neighbourhood crazy lady who always dresses up in a costume to hand out candy and whose breath smells suspiciously like boozy apple cider? That would be me.
So when we got an invitation to a Halloween party, I quickly went out and found the most deliciously creepy costumes. I purchased these olden-day outfits, all white and raggedy and bought make-up to make our faces look dead and ghastly.
Is this not cool, or what?!

But our friends had to cancel. There will be no party. Talk about being all dressed up with no place to go! So, if you know of any place that could use a little haunting, please let me know.
