It Must Be The Night Of Halloween

Devil horns and candy corns,
It must be Halloween!
Black cats and witch's hats,
It must be Halloween!
Trick or treats and ghosts in sheets,
It must be the night of Halloween!

Dark nights and scary frights,
It must be Halloween!
Werewolves cry as bats fly,
It must be Halloween!
Autumn leaves blow and pumpkins glow,
It must be the night of Halloween!

Monsters roar and owls soar,
It must be Halloween!
Spirits haunt and demons jaunt,
It must be Halloween!
Skeletons walk as vampires stalk,
It must be the night of Halloween!

    Hi Kelly, this one truly sings. It just flows along In Its fun. Bring out the monsters, It's Halloween, they only get this one chance to have a little fun. Maybe this Is more of an American holiday. This year at Halloween my story was Craigie hall. I scared myself with that one. Yes, this Is a write fitting for the contest. From the first line you pull your readers Into the world of Halloween Kelly. The visions flow so easily Into the mind. Have a good day. Later. Your Friend always....MIKE

    Hi Mike, thank you very much for kind comments.... Halloween is my favorite holiday. I have read a lot of the history behind it, and it is so interesting how different countries celebrate it. Our traditions of trick or treating and carving pumpkins were born in the United States. But, they were derived from older traditions in Ireland and other countries. Halloween is celebrated in a darker and more frightening way in America, even though it was more fun and carefree in the old days.
