It’s Halloween

The_Witch_on_Her_Broom_Stick_by_Ida_Rentoul_Outhwaite,_1921

This is a poem written by Jack Prelutsky that was in a children’s book that was a favorite of my kids.

It’s Halloween

It’s Halloween! It’s Halloween!

The moon is full and bright

And we shall see what can’t be seen

On any other night.

Skeletons and ghosts and ghouls,

Grinning goblins fighting duels,

Werewolves rising from their tombs,

Witches on their magic brooms.

In masks and gowns

We haunt the street

And knock on doors

For trick or treat.

Tonight we are

The king and queen,

For oh tonight

It’s Halloween!

Happy Halloween to all my fellow blogging friends!

      Well at least you bought a pumpkin. My house will be a sorry sight tonight with a few little ceramic pumpkin candle holders for decorations 😦 Good news in that it is supposed to rain and we need it. Might not be fun for the kids though.

        It did rain here a little, and the candle inside my son’s carved pumpkin went out. (I forgot to buy candles for putting inside his pumpkin–my husband used a citronella candle from the porch!) Then, we woke up to snow–unheard of, on November 1, in our part of the U.S.

        Wow, snow. The rain held off here pretty much except for a few sprinkles until I went to bed. Then it rained all night. My husband said it snowed in the mountains. It was really wonderful to have the rain again. I had to run to the store to get those tea candles because I did not have any small enough. I had my small terracotta candle holders inside.
