Sunday Funday: The Season Of Ghosties And Ghoulies Edition

Sometimes you just have to step away and recharge for the final run. Thank goodness Halloween comes this time of year. This is a time when life moves indoors and our imaginations are allowed to expand as night grow longer, colder and darker. Halloween begins what an old friend used to call the “season of spirits.” The “season of sprits” culminates in early January as we see the days begin to grow longer. Not warmer, but longer.

 

The beauty of the fall colors gives way to the slumber and darkness of autumn and winter. For one night we see kids of all ages dressed in fun costumes around the neighborhoods of Iowa and the country. One of the more recent additions to the lore of Halloween is folks who light their house up and bring them life with song. Just on the off chance you have never seen one of these videos, here we go:
