It's that spookable time of year and I love it! If I had my way, the week of Halloween would be a legal holiday (or holiweek). There's just too much ghoulish fun to squish into one tiny evening.

Some of my favorite Halloween celebrations include:
♦Making caramel apples
♦Pumpkin carving
♦Costume contests
♦Masquerade Balls (held in the front living room among tiny princesses, swaggering pirates, and assorted detectives)
♦ Donut eating contest (sugar donuts are hung from a string above you and you try to be the first to eat yours-gotta love the avalanche of sugar when you do this)
♦Decorating pumkin sugar cookies
♦Trick or treating
♦Making Goblin Goo (bright green dyed popcorn balls)

And last but not least:
♦Watching old time classic scary movies such as:
Arsenic and Old Lace
And Then There Were None
The Hound of the Baskervilles (it has to be the one with Basil Rathbone)
The Mummy (with Boris Karloff)
It's the Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown
Disney's Legend of Sleepy Hollow

Have a Happy Halloween!!
