Halloween decorating contest
By TAMMI KATE LEDFORD
Halloween is the night when dead leaves take flight, like witches on switches across the moonlit sky. When little elves and sprites flit through the night it’s a moon struck eerie sight. Tonight is the night when leaves make a sound, like a grumpy old gnome in his home under ground. Every spook and troll will creep out of their holes, all mossy and green and smelling rank. Tonight is the night when Jack-o-lanterns stare, through sheaves and leaves everywhere. When ghouls and ghosts and goblins host a dance round their Queen feeling the most. The rumble of mischief with fill each lawn and the winner will be chosen just before dawn.
