Tomorrow is the first day of October...and here in Tulgey Wood, that means the Countdown to Halloween 2015 is about to begin. Right here among the usual madness, days are shorter, shadows are darker, and everywhere will be ghosts, ghouls and goodies of the trick-or-treat kind. It's all part of the annual blogathon that this year so far has over 200 blogs tricking and/or treating as part of the fun. Be sure and check out the many and varied blogs that are working hard carving pumpkins and baking ghost-shaped cookies for your Halloweening pleasure. (As usual, please be aware that some of these blogs sometimes use less-than-family-friendly language and content, dealing as they do with the truly "horrific" side of Halloween, so blog-browser discretion is advised, especially if one happens to be on the sensitive side.) As for this here little ol' blog, all through October, right up through the 31st itself, I hope to have some fun visuals and interesting info for you along the way, along with a few spooky surprises. Come back tomorrow for the start of the 2015 Countdown to Halloween blogathon. It will be a Halloween hoot!
