Halloween Thoughts, Old and New
"There is a child in every one of us who is still a trick-or-treater, looking for a brightly-lit front porch."
"I don't know if there are real ghosts and goblins, but I know that there are always more trick-or-treaters than neighborhood kids."
"There's an after-Halloween glow that lasts until the next time you try to ward off a vampire with a bite-size Snickers bar."
"To remember yourself as a child at Halloween is to recall a little ghost dressed up as a kid dressed up as a little ghost."
"For every bodiless spirit you encounter, there is a spiritless body you really don't want to run across."
"There are moonlit nights when the dead send their ghosts to haunt us -- and dark misty nights when they come themselves."
"I don't know that there are haunted houses. I know that there are dark staircases and haunted memories."
"All parties are masquerade parties. Even an invitation to come as you are is an invitation to come in your usual disguise."
"There is a bond forged between two people who have hid together under the same bed."
"Nothing dispels the rattling of ghosts in the attic like the twittering of goblins on the front porch."
