Trick or Treat! Smell My Feet! We Want Something Good to Eat!

When I was a kid, I remember having a record of Halloween Songs. Yes a vinyl record. One particular song stuck in my head so that even 30+ years latter when it gets to be Halloween these words ring in my head:

H-A-DOUBLE L-O-W-DOUBLE E-N spells Halloween!
H-A-DOUBLE L-O-W-DOUBLE E-N spells Halloween!
Over and over again…thus I never forgot how to spell the word and passed the little diddy onto my own children.

On Hallowe’en the thing you must do
Is pretend that nothingcan frighten you
An’ if somethin’ scares you and you want to run
Jus’ let on like it’s Hallowe’en fun.
-from an Early Nineteenth Century Halloween Postcard

Nothing on Earth so beautiful as the final haul on Halloween night. -Steve Almond

Hold on, man. We don’t go anywhere with “scary,” “spooky,” “haunted,” or “forbidden” in the title. -From Scooby-Doo

This Halloween the most popular mask is the Arnold Schwarzenegger mask. And the best part? With a mouth full of candy you will sound just like him. -Conan O’Brien

Hark! Hark to the wind! ‘Tis the night, they say,
When all souls come back from the far away-
The dead, forgotten this many a day! – Virna Sheard

Where there is no imagination there is no horror. –Arthur Conan Doyle, Sr.

There are nights when the wolves are silent and only the moon howls. -George Carlin

Charlie Brown is the one person I identify with. C.B. is such a loser. He wasn’t even the star of his own Halloween special. -Chris Rock

From ghoulish and ghosties and long leggety beasties and things that go bump in the night, Good Lord, deliver us! – Scottish saying

Backward, turn backward,O Time, in your flight make me a child again just for to-night!
-Elizabeth Akers Allen
