The season of spooks and spirits is upon us, and I couldn’t be happier!
Last week we decorated the library with flickering lights, highlighting our Haunted Mansion theme.
Saturday we watched one of our favorite classic Universal horror films, “Abbott and Costello Meet Frankenstein,” on Svengoolie on MeTV. Last night we decorated the living room with some with our Halloween flickering lights and some spooky paintings, lit from within and replete with sound effects. Right now we’re watching “Halloween Wars” on Food Network. Then we watched the Osbournes rate spooky video clips…which is a strange show, but it’s fun. We’ve also subscribed to Shudder to watch horror movies all month long, Disney+ to watch “Muppets Haunted Mansion,” and my lovely bride has already watched the original “Halloween” three times plus a documentary about it.
We got married not a few years ago in October because we loved Halloween so much. We were at the first two Universal Halloween Horror Nights, and then the 20th, and this year we are regretting that we’re missing the 30th (it should have been last year, but COVID).
I guess what I’m saying is, we love October and Halloween just as much as Ray Bradbury ever did. Maybe you do, too. So for the rest of the month I’ll be celebrating Halloween off and on…and I’ll also do it whenever I feel like it for the rest of my life. In the meantime, my friend Colleen Doran, a wonderful artist and writer, has a couple of graphic novels available that are perfect for the Halloween season:
