I went to Lowes Home Improvement Store today and…WTH? The Christmas Trees are up already. I get it after Halloween, but not before!!! It’s only October 6th. It makes my head hurt. I’m going to go watch Hocus Pocus to get me back in the Halloween mood 🙂
Yeah it finally arrived…October 1, 2015. For me it is the beginning of Halloween season. I love Autumn and Halloween! I start off every October by watching Hocus Pocus!
It is my most favorite Halloween Movie of all time and is on my top 10 list of favorite movies of all time. I loved this movie so much when it came out that I saw it 4x at the theater. I then planned my next year’s vacation around it. I went to visit Salem, Massachusetts to walk the walk of the movie sites. Allison’s house, the neighborhood, The School and park, Town Hall and the Salem Village. I LOVED IT! I loved it so much that I went back for the next two October’s to relive the fun. I also read every book I could find on the Salem Witch Trials. That was a rather nasty business but the history of it was amazing.
If you ever go to Salem for Halloween/October just remember it is their busiest tourist season. I had to make my hotel reservations 1 year in advance (this was recommended by the city website for Haunted Happenings). I stayed in the neighboring town of Danvers and loved it.
What’s my second movie to watch for Halloween Month…Why Nightmare Before Christmas of course!
Happy October Everybody!
My favorite Holiday will always be Halloween. We went to this Christmas Palace in Lancaster and the museum was amazing. I can’t help myself, I love anything with pointed ears. Elves, Fairies, Trolls and yes, even Mr. Spock.
I wanted to run away with the last two elves. They are ADORABLE!!! I’m lucky though I have some pointy little creatures of my own at home so as to satiate my love of pointy eared folks.
Okay the last one is my puppy friend Willow but she’s got pointy ears so I totally am counting her!
Chardonnay is a little Fairy Bean found for me. She’s amazingly fun and she always carries that bottle of wine so I think she’s half-lit most of the time and I totally dig that, lol.
Yesterday was Halloween. It is said it is the one day a year that the dead can rise. In Catholicism, today is All Saint’s Day. What I’m saying is that between 10/31 and 11/2 it’s all about the dead folks. So I’m sharing some personal Dead Folks with you all. Also I love old pictures.
Looking closely at this picture I noticed that my Mother had the same type of feet as her Grandmother. Weird.
And for my last photo of the no longer living….
I know that these are pictures of people I’m related too but I have no idea who they are. It’s always bothered me that I have pictures of people I don’t know but that I feel I should know. The man sitting on the right kind of looks like my Great-Grandfather. Maybe it’s his brother? I should have asked him when he came back for Halloween.
Oh well…maybe next year.
Today I made a new friend.
I know I look pretty good on the inside. Or you might be asking why I have a picture of my skull…good question. It’s because I’m awesomely cool and mildly crazy.
Autumn temps are here in the burg. I’m loving it. The colder the better!
It finally stopped raining here so it is easier to enjoy the autumnal weather. But I love the contrast from cold mornings to warmer afternoons and then cycle back to the cold temps in the evening.
I loved this picture of the sun warming the cold morning. It just sums up my love of this time of the year. I’m pretty sure I’m not one of those people who could live anywhere. I’m needy and must have seasonal changes. I like the snow in winter even if it makes commuting to work annoying. It’s pretty to look at and play in. Then spring snaps us out of the coldness and we are back into warmth and sun for the next 6 months. Perfection in my book.
p.s. I find the need to change my blogs interface from time to time but right now I can’t seem to decide on one so don’t be surprised if it looks different later.
