It may surprise you, dear reader, that I’ve been haunted with thoughts about Halloween – even in the soon to be sweltering heat of summer. I’m not quite sure how to explain the phenomenon, other than perhaps the lush and energetic evenings of summertime often charge my imagination with thoughts of decrepit, southern mansions and spooky stories told ’round the campfire. And indeed! Summer is only the wondrous prelude to my favorite time of year.
But am I the only one with thoughts of Halloween somewhere in early June? Apparently not. During one of my endless dives through the Internet, I happened upon a fantastic blog of all matters Halloween that helped to sate my hunger for spook-filled reveries.
I’ve even managed to get the family charged up with off-season spirit. Plans for our elaborate Halloween decorations are already underway, as the inclusion of 4th Quality Bucky Skeletons to our yard haunt requires a bit of extra planning.
That said, I do have every intention of capitalizing on the summer season. It would be plain ghoulish not to.
