Moi DOES NOT practice the occult and does not believe in some of the darker aspects of Halloween. Still, there are many fun aspects of the day, Today’s deposit in the ‘Joy Jar’ is the fun that Halloween can bring.

“I think if human beings had genuine courage, they’d wear their costumes every day of the year, not just on Halloween. Wouldn’t life be more interesting that way? And now that I think about it, why the heck don’t they? Who made the rule that everybody has to dress like sheep 364 days of the year? Think of all the people you’d meet if they were in costume every day. People would be so much easier to talk to – like talking to dogs. ”
Douglas Coupland, The Gum Thief

“I wish everyday could be Halloween. We could all wear masks all the time. Then we could walk around and get to know each other before we got to see what we looked like under the masks.”
R.J. Palacio

“Pirates are not born; they are made out of God’s tears and the devil’s furry.”
Shannon L. Alder, Never or Forever

There is a child in every one of us who is still a trick-or-treater looking for a brightly-lit front porch.

Where there is no imagination there is no horror.
