Have a harrowing Halloween

After all, how can a day that celebrates death and gore be considered "happy"? It seems to me that every year Halloween becomes more adult-oriented, while fewer kids actually go door to door begging for sweets. It's probably just as well. Perhaps in the Age of Terror, the idea of being "frightened to death" is no longer quite so funny. Or maybe I'm just grouchy today. In any case, we didn't carve any pumpkins this year, but please feel free to peek at the one we did two Halloweens ago.
