I wait for it all year, the uprising of marketing’s favorite word for Halloween advertisements. The word is “spooktacular”.
During our walk last weekend, my friends and I came to an area covered with the creepiest kind of vine we’ve ever seen. My friend made the comment that it resembled a web. Her comment freaked me out, as I envisioned a big, furry, black spider coming out of the vines. *Shudder* Suffice it to say, this vine is spooktacular.

That is creepy – looks like it could reach right out and grab meeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee…
Noooooooo Katy!! Nooooo!
that would be cool if you could somehow illuminate it from within .. imagine walking past THAT on Halloween? EEK!
That would make the eerie patch more eerie, MJ. For certain!
That is pretty spooky.
I don’t know why, but I thought this was going to be about a corn maze. Have you ever taken to boys to one of those?
No, we’ve never taken the boys to a corn maze, but as my Mom mentioned below-she and my oldest sister did take them to a corn maze.
The picture doesn’t do the spook-factor justice. I suppose that’s a good thing. I’d hate to be the causer of nightmares.
If Lenore hasn’t taken the boys to a corn Maze, her Aunt Corkey and Grammy have.
Great! My (and my mom’s) favorite holiday has always been Halloween. I’m dismayed by two recent turns, though. First: the “safety” issue. I know if I were a parent, I’d be just as concerned about this as current parents are, but I miss the days when hoards of kids would canvass the neighborhood, seeking the spookiest houses. Second: the commercialization of the holiday. It used to be that hand made costumes were the norm. Maybe a store bought mask…but all else hand crafted. The addition of fancy lighted and electronically blown up objects for decorations just means more marketing, more spending, more planned obsolescence.
Whaaa. It doesn’t often happen, but for this holiday, I long for the 50’s and 60’s.
My favorite costume growing up was Little Bo Peep, which my Mom made. All of my sisters wore it for at least one Halloween. Homemade costumes are the best costumes.
It’s kind of…
(my nose isn’t running, is it? Because I feel like my nose might be running…)
It is a bit Blair Witchy, without the wobbly camera of course. 😉
Interesting web, er, I mean vine! 🙂
