POLL TIME! Halloween Edition

Ack, where did the time go? The weeks are flying by, and October will be here before we know it! I'd like to ask your opinion, if I may.

FYI, for those of you who don't know, for the last eight years I've had a tradition of turning this blog into a month-long celebration of Halloween, posting a "spooky post" every day in October. You can see my past October posts here.

(Note: If you're not on LiveJournal and can't vote via the ticky-boxes, you're welcome to leave a comment!)

Thanks for your input!

Oh yeay - I do like your Halloween posts! And this year I'm going to be doing a Halloween-themed reading challenge, so will hopefully be even more in the spirit of things... *vbg*

In this modern world, where zombies, vampires (and even C'thulu), are all taken rather lightly, your Halloween posts are a refreshing breath of dank fog-ridden air. I won't have time to read them all, but I know I will enjoy every one I can.

Oh, yes! It's how I found you to begin with (I don't remember who recommended you, but thanks!). And as always, feel free to use any of my cemetery pix. I'm looking forward to it!

Halloween is coming!
Yes, please, as much Halloween as you can muster. I vote for creepy history behind classic Halloween traditions or stories, atmospheric photos with an accompanying poem or snippet of prose, and any "true" spooky tales you would like to share or that you've heard from others.

I especially love reading and film recs, but creepy music is wonderful, and I am very excited to think you might post chilling photos or art. :) That sounds wonderful! I always look forward so much to your Halloween-season postings. I look for them every day when I can, and batch-enjoy when I've had to be away a bit.
