The cool crisp air whistling through the trees along quiet, moonlit neighborhoods; the scenery like abstract paintings in hues of orange, yellows, and reds; the crazily comfy sweaters that wrap you like a warm hug. Yup, it’s official. Fall has arrived and it is graciously accompanied by the ever-exhilarating all Hallows Eve, and a spirit that spreads like a virus through die-hard Halloween fans everywhere.
Twisted souls from all walks of life suddenly begin to assemble frightening displays of evil-doings and massive maniacal miscreants. Immortal beings by the hundreds flood the once serene communities’ homes, roadways, and lives. Establishments everywhere host cult-like gatherings for the earthbound dead, the criminally insane, the bewitchingly beautiful, the outrageously originals to come together to worship their sacred occasion.
Yes, the moment the heat breaks and the first leaf falls, it's go time. Here are just a few of my favorites, enjoy!
