It’s heeeeeeere.

Halloweeeeeeen.

Ghosts.

And goblins.

And ghouls.

Oh my.

Witches.

And monsters.

And things that fly.

Will it be cold?

Will it be dry?

Halloween.

Harbinger of Fall.

Prelude to Thanksgiving.

(Sedate in comparison.)

Halloween’s more party.

More pagan.

More religious.

An old event.

With roots going back to the 7th Century.

It’s pomp before circumstance.

Honoring saints.

And praying for those who recently died—

Whose souls have yet to reach heaven.

“Don we now our gay apparel!”

Lyrics truer for Halloween.

There’s no end to dressing gaily, or otherwise.

Whether it be sailor or soldier.

Pirate or chef.

Gypsy or ballerina.

Batman or Catwoman.

Queen or princess.

Bullfighter.

Cowboy.

Dracula.

Gorilla.

Red ninja.

Mickey and Minnie.

A bumblebee.

Pumpkin.

Dragon or fairy.

Lion or ladybug.

Incredible Hulk.

Nurse or doctor.

Anything goes.

And Pop Culture is part of it.

Minion or Minecraft.

Breaking Bad or Fox.

Duck Dynasty.

Miley Cyrus.

(Miley Cyrus?)

Daenerys.

Gatsby dress costume.

And Daft Punk.

A perfect group for Trick.

Or treat!

That’s Mason.
