It's nearly time.
The sun sets, the grounds darken, and the joy begins.
The joy of watching hard work become 'living, breathing' spookiness; such a remarkable and blessed (and it is blessed, damnit!) part of the wondrous, deep Hallowe'en magic.
We've worked hard enough that tomorrow, October 30th, we will be doing something we've never done before.
We will be running our display on the night before Hallowe'en as well as on Hallowe'en proper.
Every thing's just about ready, so why not? Plus, we have friends and some family who may not be able to attend on Sunday night so they'll have a chance to see it on Saturday.
Add to that the joy of having TWO Hallowe'en nights in a row, and you have a recipe, a brew, for pure heaven.
Loyal S&P'er Mr. Macabre is dead right -- people need Hallowe'en -- and Hallowe'en people need as much of it as they can get.
I cannot tell any of you how much it means to me that we are Autumn People.
And I don't really have to. You all know the magic as deeply as I do.
The next two days are a blur, but there will be pictures posted tomorrow night (and those of you attending Sunday might want to exercise a little self-control and avoid the S&P until you've seen it yourself!).
A happy, happy All Hallow's Eve... um... Eve, to each and every one of you.
