On this last day of October, I wish you a Happy Halloween.
As a Halloween gift to you, I have written a short story. Just press the “Fiction” tab above on this webpage to read The Eerie Mrs. Healy.
QUOTES OF THE DAY
Here are some Halloween quotes for you. Hope you enjoy them.
One need not be a chamber to be haunted;
One need not be a house;
The brain has corridors surpassing
- Emily Dickinson
- From One Need Not Be A Chamber To Be Haunted
‘Tis now the witching time of night.
When churchyards yawn and hell itself breathes out
Contagion to this world
Just like a ghost, you’ve been a-hauntin’ my dreams,
So I’ll propose . . . on Halloween.
Love is kinda crazy with a spooky little girl like you.
From the Classics IV song, Spooky; Songwriters : J.R. Cobb, Mike Shapiro, Harry Middlebrooks and Buddy Buie

A grandmother pretends she doesn’t know who you are on Halloween.

The word "Halloween" is a shortened form of "Hallow-Even", the evening before Hallows Day or All Saints Day ( November 1). "Hallow" is an old English word meaning to make holy or consecrated.
