Since it’s around the time of Halloween, I thought it would be fun to have a selection of stories that fit the occasion. As a kid, I loved this time of year and sure, the ability to wander from house to house collecting candy was a huge selling point.

Well, that and getting to dress up as whatever character I was into that year. My costumes started out with Looney Tunes characters like Sylvester the Cat and quickly morphed into Star Wars characters, since the very first Star Wars movie was released the month after I turned 6 years old.

I’ve just always loved the spooky fun of Halloween, but am far too old now to go begging for candy. That said, I’m the perfect age to share some bits of lore, silly moments, and fun memories related to my own Halloween hijinks.

    This is a fun one. Halloween makes for a lot of great stories. Ah, Edgar Allen Poe. Love his poems. I enjoy my Halloween appetizer plates inspired by his poem etched with Ravens. You did an excellent job of narrating. Happy Hallowen!!
