Two Little Witches
What do you think about how Halloween is celebrated today? When we were kids,
(back in the middle ages...;-) Mom taped up some cardboard cutouts on the windows, mostly pumpkins and black cats. We always carved a jack o lantern. Now the neighborhood lights up with orange lights, graveyards on the lawn, mummies on the porches. Pools of blood... Giant spiders...YIKES!
We plug in our electric pumpkin, (no guts, I hate pumpkin guts!) fill up the candy bowl and we're done. I do autumn and harvest and Thanksgiving...but not Halloween. I've had beautiful pumpkins last well into the new year... Reminds me of in the Great Pumpkin when Linus says to Lucy who is carving a pumpkin, "You didn't tell me you were gonna kill it!"
I don't understand the attraction to gore, zombies,skeletons and such. Now you answer the door for trick or treaters and you never know what you're gonna get...An axe murderer..horrible masks. You could blame it on my advancing age, ...but I never liked it.
I digress as usual... Oh well, enjoy this beautiful day my friends, and have a wonderful weekend!
