It is October 31, All Hallows Eve.

Tomorrow is November 1, All Saints Day.

In olden times people could indulge in riotous behavior–to give the devil his due–on Halloween, then repent and be holy on November 1, kind of hedging one’s bets, I imagine.

Anyway, enjoy Halloween. It’s always appealed to the drama lover in me. Costumes, makeup, make believe.

Halloween reminds me of Anya Seton‘s reincarnation novel, Green Darkness, Johnny Depp in Sleepy Hollow and anything by Shirley Jackson.

Have fun.  Be safe out there.

  1. Love your pictures! Those tombstones would make cute cookies.

    • Okay! Let’s eat some tombstones! Did you notice the pictures of the Jane Austen cookies on the previous blog? They were shaped like teapots. Very cute. How would you make a tombstone cookie?
      Very carefully.

  2. I was going to say I couldn’t eat a tombstone cookie, but I’ve changed my mind.

  3. If they have vanilla extract, they are probably okay. I think the Jane Austen cookies were very cute.
