One Halloween night many many years ago, a very creative teenager made two collars from old belts, added a length of chain connecting the two, harnessed his two younger siblings with more chain and a leash and terrorized an inner city neighborhood (“terrorized” is probably too harsh but it’s a good word to use for a Halloween post). I wish cameras were as common then as they are now. You’ll have to use your imagination to picture the scene I described. I’m certain we would have took first place in any costume contest.
Halloween is one of my favorite holidays, but some view it as anti-Christian and even go so far to say that it’s demonic, what with all the devils and witches and signs of death. (If that’s your view, then please discuss it somewhere else.) I could mention the origins of this spooky holiday but I don’t feel it’s necessary. And I think it’s safe to say that most of y’all feel the same way I do about it.
I don’t recall the number of times I’ve watched “It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown!” But I can recall that night, a long time ago, when my brother and I were transformed into wild dogs leashed to a one-eyed, hunchbacked master with a whip, whose idea got us enough Halloween candy to last all winter!
I don’t normally use themes for postings, but did this time. So with fall and Halloween in mind, here’s a few pictures.
