Yes! It’s here! One of my favourite days of the year! Nothing to fear! Halloween is here!
Sorry about that. I don’t know what came over me… I do like Halloween for some reason. Years ago, it was something of nothing, but today it seems to have gathered a bit of an air of importance around it. For the past few years, we have been treated to live editions of Most Haunted on TV, where the team would go in search of ghosts and other spirits, erm, live, but it isn’t on this year. A new series called simply “Paranormal Investigation: Live” appears to have replaced it. New teams with new methods for trying to capture evidence that ghosts actually exist.
I don’t need to watch TV to know that, though. My ghostly visitor has been a little quiet of late, but I’m sure I have heard her in the night, letting me know she is around. She has started to move papers around now. In the stillness of the night, I’ll hear one piece of paper slip from where it was lying. I don’t mind admitting it does startle me a little. Well, you don’t really expect any kind of movement when you are settling down to sleep, do you?
I don’t know if she will visit me today, though. I’ve heard that they aren’t particularly keen on our Halloween celebrations, and tend to stay away on this day. I could be wrong though. I don’t mind it when she visits. I wonder if she’ll write her name on one of the pieces of paper that she moves next time she pops in… That will be cool. I can start to find out more about her then!
As well as my ghost, I’ve written a few posts over the past few weeks featuring a few other Halloween favourites, all to pass the time in anticipation for today… witches, vampires, werewolves and demons have all been mentioned. They’ll probably be mentioned again in the future, after all, there will be another Halloween next year! And I think monsters and aliens may be mentioned too. And why not?
Another thing to mention with it being Halloween and all, my banner will start to look slightly less cluttered again from tomorrow. I can’t leave it decorated for Halloween all the time, can I? Here’s how it was meant to look… the black cat seems to have disappeared from the banner when I added it. Spooky.
Whatever you are doing today, however you are spending Halloween, enjoy it! Have a great day!!!
