"Shadows of a thousand years rise again unseen
Voices whisper in the trees,
'Tonight is Halloween!'"
Vampires Loom Above the Avenue
"Come with me All Hallow's night
We'll frighten everyone in sight
Such pranks for once, are justified
And fun and frolic amplified."

"In the United States today, there is a pervasive tendency
to treat children as adults, and adults as children. . .
The result is unruly children and childish adults."
"From ghoulies and ghosties
And long-leggedy beasties
And things that go bump in the night,
Good Lord, deliver us!"
ALOHA, Friends! cloudia
