31 Days Until Halloween

Strange to think the High Holiday is a month away.  I'd imagine the Yard Haunter is a modern form of the Druid Priest.  Our offerings aren't as fiery nor as bloody, but they're important offerings nonetheless, packed with emotion and Tradition.  And Spirit.

I love being a part of this ancient holiday. 
I absolutely love it.

Hahaha...our offering has fire AND blood in it.

Lit tea light candles...and scraps and bruises from building.

I think Halloween in the 21st century is way more fun than when it originated. I have ready many, many, MANY variations on Halloween origins and man, sometimes they are snoozeville . LOL. I had to say it. They always lose me around the time they start mentioning druids and gourds being used as lanterns, etc.

I love how it is now. Like from the 1900's on up. ;)

Not to take away from your druidiness! I mean, your druidness is cool! Some of my best friends are druids? Don't hate me. :)

You ruined my Druid vibeness.


or, rather, you runed it. (druid humor)

I love Druid humor.
Man, these last two months flew past me too quickly. Gotta kick it up a notch on building props.

Well spoken, Rot. This will be a great Halloween, I know it. Probably because it's in the 13th year of this millienium. So looking forward to it.

We need to start sacrificing some animals so we get NO rain or snow this year.

I did sacrifice some blood when I almost severe my thumb with a machete trimming branches.

I'm not sure I can scream DITTO!
loud enough. And not to gush, thanks for all the inspiration. Seriously, our haunt has never looked so cool.

Same! Last night (under cover of darkness) I put up our outside decorations (no yard so we just leave our "display" up on the balcony all month) and it is very much a ritual moment to turn off all the lights and troop downstairs to see how it looks from the street.

Very well said, Rot. Happy October 1st!
