Thursday's Thirteen: What says Halloween?

Halloween: as my daughter drapes my house in its Halloween splendor, I thought what really says Halloween?

1. Jack-o-lanterns?

2. Scarecrows?
3. Black cats?
4. Fake webbing?
5. Little bitty chocolate bars?
6. Horror movies?

7. Costumes?

8. Sculls?
9. The colors black and orange?
10. Ghosts?
11. Bowls and bags filled with cheep candy?
12. The smell of warm (or burning) pumpkins mixed with candle wax on
Halloween night?
13. Little kids screaming tick-or-treat!

What says Halloween to you?

Happy T13!

Alice Audrey said...

Yep, that's Halloween all right.

Midnight Moon Cafe said...

Our T13 is up at the Midnight Moon Cafe:

Pumpkins, apple cider and the smell of freshly cut cornstalks. (I live in the country.)

Shelley Munro said...

Well, we don't have Halloween in NZ but when I see carved pumpkins I think of Halloween.

Ms Menozzi said...

Once upon a time, a viewing of "It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown!" meant Halloween for me.

I don't get to see it anymore, though. :(

I miss Halloween! At least here, November 1st is a day off from work, if it falls during the week. :)

Happy TT!

Pumpkin pie, hot chocolate, the terror filled screams of adults and children alike.

Ahh, the neighbors know better than to visit our house if they don't like to be scared. muhahaha!

Happy T13!

Ella Drake said...

Halloween to me is all of that, but mostly the costumes and the kids trick or treating.

Inez Kelley said...

Costumed children and buckets of candy!

Cambria Dillon said...

All of those things! I'm sad I'll be in Vegas during Halloween and won't have a jack-o-lantern or baked pumpkin seeds this year. :(

Paige Tyler said...

Totally Halloween! Love the pet costumes!

Hi Adelle,

You and me both sweetie.

Hi Alice,


Hi Um, Midnight moon,

Thank you, and I will go check out your 13 too.

Hi Mary,

Ooh cider, that does sound good.

Hi Shelly,

Yeah I sometimes forget that Halloween isn't celebrated around the world. Yeah, pumpkins do say that loud and clear.

Hi Ms. Menozzi,

You could buy the CD and play it on Halloween?

Hi C.M.,

Oh your house sounds like fun. Yeah, I use to love to take my daughter out, and see the houses that really get into the spirit of the season.

Hi Ella,

I like the costumes too. Its the best time of the year, you can pretent to be anyone you want to be. At least for one night.

Hi Inez,

Yup, especially when they show up at your door.

Hi Cambria,

Ah, hun, can't do a little something? Los Vegas celebrates Hallween too.

Hi Paige,

Thank you. Yeah they are cute.

Happy TT everybody, and thanks for post on my blog.
