I had been wanting to write a post on Halloween on Maui since last week but I had been very busy all week I did not get a chance to write it. Today it struck me that Halloween is on Monday (as in this coming Monday) so I better get on my okole today and upload a post or else it will be too late.

As an accountant, I rarely get to enjoy Halloween any more (it’s right at the month end!) but I used to love dressing up and going out. So, I’ll live vicariously through the pics on your FB page.
(I know exactly what you mean about I betta post before the opportunity passes.)
I love Halloween. The kind where Snoopy waits for the Great Pumpkin, and the dark of night reveals ghouls and goblins and witches too. The breezy, leaf-blown hallows-eve where the moon illuminates the sky behind shadows of trees and kids can be heard giggling over fist-fulls of candy. The smell of pumpkin pie reminds us that Thanksgiving is just around the corner.
