A little bit dark, a little bit spooky...

"The wind outside nested in each tree....


... and prowled the sidewalks in invisible treads like unseen cats......


....anyone could see that the wind was a special wind this night... 

... and the darkness took on a special feel because it was All Hallow's Eve ....



... everything seemed cut from soft black velvet or gold or orange velvet... 


... smoke panted up out of a thousand chimneys like the plumes of funeral parades ....




... from kitchen windows drifted two pumpkin smells: gourds being cut, pies being baked."
- Ray Bradbury,
  The Halloween Tree
