Tomorrow is Halloween, a holiday I’ve always been of two minds on. On one hand, I’ve had many fun Halloweens. We used to decorate the basement in the house I grew up in, and on a couple occasions I remember parties down there with all my friends from school and the neighborhood. We would run around all amped up on sugar, bobbing for apples and playing pranks. The evening was capped off by sitting on the cement walls bordering the backyard, that huge oak tree forming a black silhouette in the center, telling ghost stories.
On the other hand, since reaching adulthood, I haven’t really taken to the holiday like when I was a kid. To me, it is a holiday for children, and never has had the enduring spirit of Christmas. It seems a little ridiculous how excited some adults get. I’ve even cynically thought of it as simply an excuse to get drunk at Halloween parties. Am I too much the curmudgeon? Probably, haha! Anyway, here are a few shots I managed to find with a more or less spooky mood to them.
