Awesome pics guys!
I dont have any old school pics on my computer to post but from the time I can remember HALLOWEEN was THE holiday of the year for my brother and I. Even more than Xmas. My mom used to make our costumes from scratch....we'd carve pumpkins; bob for apples; of course trick or treat.....decorations. man the sites; the smells; the aura was what dreams are made of.
It never left me. I mourn the end of Samhain every year. Its so important to my and my family now that I have kids and also within the circle of my friends as we have followed the "wheel of the year" and all its fests for years now. Samhain being the most important.
I cant wait for this year....Halloween on a SATURDAY! :HellYeah:
