When I was a kid, my mom used to recite a Halloween poem during October. It was short, but very effective in igniting the macabre and magic of Halloween in my imagination. I hope it does the same for you! Happy Halloween from The Ghoulie Guide.
“The time when bats fly through the rooms,
And witches ride about on brooms,
And people try the strangest dishes —
That’s the time for making wishes.
When pumpkin lights are everywhere,
And ghost that giggle on the stairs
Are waiting to jump out at you —
That’s when wishes all come true.”
~ Annette Wyne (from “For Days and Days” – 1919)
