It’s Thursday. Carl the Camel and I are tired. He spent all day Wednesday celebrating. My husband and I’ve been drying out and wrapping the Halloween candle holders—all 240 of them.
We discovered a mermaid set up shop in the graveyard advertising free swimming lessons.
Would you take swimming lessons from a mermaid?
Otherwise, Halloween was a screaming success.
Wednesday arrived. With it, the ghost and wizards and goblins smiled on us. The final set-up began at 3 p.m.
That’s when we discovered this . . .
This is what it looks like when a pumpkin is on the pot and his next door neighbor is down wind.
. . . we know why this pumpkin is smiling.
This year’s volunteers arrived at 4 p.m. to help with the candle lighting ceremony. Let’s face it, what’s a graveyard without candles? Less spooky.
They came early, they came often. We celebrated a new Wednesday night record of 198 trick or treaters.
8:00 p.m. rain fell from the sky and Halloween ended in our neighborhood.
By 9:30 p.m. we gathered up the candles from the graveyard but left up the decorations for the second time in our history. Several people requested we leave them up through the weekend because they couldn’t make it last night. I’m all for it.
Only 364 days until next Halloween.
Thanks for stopping by!
