Happy Hallowe’en Season!

People who know me know that I am a great fan of Hallowe’en, and a big fan of vintage greeting cards too–especially Christmas and Hallowe’en cards. While contemporary spelling has removed ye olde apostrophe from today’s cards when it comes to the spelling of “Hallowe’en”, I like the old use of it as an indicator of the contraction of “evening”. Work keeps me too busy to do much decorating now, but I still enjoy dressing up, heading to friends’ Mike and Debbie’s amazing annual Hallowe’en party each year. My friend Gary does an fangtastic job turning his house into a haunted mansion for his daughter, Gracie–and what year would be complete without a romp through Center City Philadelphia in costume with my friends?
