My Best of Halloween Posts on G+ - Superstitions

"Another Halloween superstition occurred at midnight. That was the time when boys and girls went into the garden blindfolded and each pulled a cabbage (some claimed it was kale runts). Supposedly, the form of the cabbage head and its stalk denoted the physical peculiarities of the person’s future husband or wife. There was also a belief that if the roots tasted sweet or sour, it reflected the future spouse’s temperament." 

Fun fact about holiday traditions during the 19th century gleaned from a link shared via Google Plus by Geri Walton.

Glad she shared.  Also glad it's not true!  ☺






Not related but of significant note, Ms. Walton is the author of "Marie Antoinette’s Confidante: The Rise and Fall of the Princesse de Lamballe". Just an FYI.

My Best of Halloween Posts About the Black Cat

A Halloween celebration would be incomplete without a black cat.  

Do you think black cats are bad luck or good luck?  

Did you know that in a certain part of the world "giving a bride the gift of a black cat is thought to bring her good luck"?  

In my world, I believe a cat is just a cat, no matter what color the feline may be.  But during the Halloween season, it could be fun to dress up as a black cat!  Buy the cat mask and the rest of the outfit is left up to your imagination!  This is my way of celebrating the black cat.  😉

My Pick for Best of Halloween Spooky Scary Stories

In the mood for a really spooky scary story for #Halloween?

Or do you just want to know what human beings are capable of doing to other human beings?

This story is about an entire family who had an insatiable craving for consuming human flesh. The incidents happened circa 1400 A.D. They were finally brought to justice and executed. 

Executed??!!  Can't believe they didn't have a lawyer to plead insanity as their defense. For sure, they were all basket cases!!

Best of Halloween Costume Ideas - Queen for a Day and More!

Saw a picture of BeyoncĂ© dressed up looking like a queen holding a scepter (below) and got inspired for a Halloween costume idea.  Be a queen!

This is a Marie Antoinette-style gown. Eh!  We know her history.  Try not to think about the fact that she lost her head.  Just think of all the pretty gowns she wore.








* * * Other costume ideas?


  • Arabian costumes.  Why not be a genie?  Remember the old comedy TV show "I Dream of Jeanie".

  • Mother and Daughter Matching Witches from the Wizard of Oz.

My Best of Halloween Posts on G+ - Gothic Garden

A new trend in gardening is creating a gothic garden with mystical garden statues, and black and deep purple flowers.

In lieu of traditional pastel or brightly colored flowers, a gothic garden is becoming popular and these black (or dark purple) flowers are often included in the mix.

  • Black Cat Petunia (pictured)
  • Centaurea, Black Sprite PPAF
  • Onyx Odyssey Hellebore
  • Black Star Calla Lily

Happy Halloween! “Trick or Treat for UNICEF!” #BeScaryGood

When I was young there was a campaign/advertisement that came on television every year around or near the time to celebrate Halloween. It went like this: Children would knock on the door and when the neighbor opened their door, instead of asking for candy the kids would shout:

Trick or Treat for UNICEF!


UNICEF logo
The campaign began in 1950.  Certainly made an imprint in my mind. The idea was to get people to donate to the cause of helping children all over the world. This October 2017 will be the 67th year. I liked the idea THEN and like it NOW. Sharing this precious gem found via the UNICEF Tumblr blog. No doubt there are all kinds of ways one can contribute to such a worthy cause.

UNICEF:
Books, pencils, playgrounds, crayons – not all children will have access to these things going back to school. But they will be exposed to violence: http://uni.cf/1AbEGqt


Bless the children always.  Have to keep this charity work on the radar.  Always embrace an opportunity, especially when it's a holiday, and find a means to extend charity to those less fortunate. Trick or Treat for UNICEF!!
