Happy Halloween!

Tis the season for my second favorite holiday of the year, after my birthday. When wee ones beg and plead for their treats. Their costumes were carefully planned. They are proud little pirates, princesses or punk rockers.

No matter the costume, these little ghosts and goblins are on a mission...to collect as much candy as they possibly could within their allotted time.

No obstacles will prevent these Little Mermaids or Prince Charmings from meeting their candy quota. They will leap over curbs, climb fences, bypass their tiring parents...just to get their sugar rush.

More power to these munchkins. They realize this opportunity for FREE candy only comes once a year. They firmly believe to Go Big or Go Home!

Happy trick or treating to all...

Halloween Haiku

Ghosts and Goblins wake
Searching for candy to take
Give for your own sake

Bright orange aglow
Hovering winds go in low
the candle will blow

Put forth all your trust
All Hallows Eve is a must
to collect or bust

How quickly they sprout
little princesses are out
give treats or they pout

Mist from the cauldron
warns of evilness nearby
quickly move your feet

Source

Are you a fan of Halloween?

More Halloween Haiku

Clowns and jesters stroll
Candy for free is their goal
Parents take their toll

You got the invite
Now go on and take a bite
of sugar delight

Have them do a trick
If they really want a treat
Would that not be neat

Darkness falls quickly
Eerie sounds come from nearby
Who let the dogs out

Anticipation
Knocking on doors with such might
To all a fun fright

Eerie Witch...

      I enjoyed reading these haiku's.

      I am a very big fan of Halloween. It is one of my favorite holidays of the year. I always dressed up as a child and went trick or treating plus all the fun Halloween costume parties we had every year in our house.

      What are Lily&Faith dressing up as for Halloween?

      This is our first Halloween in the new place and 'though hubby and I are pretty much an empty nesters now, I'd still be giving away treats as a way of sharing my blessings with the children.

      Fun, spooky halloween haiku hub!

      Linda, it looks like you go all out for Halloween. If I were a little kid, your yard would scare me.

      We don't get many trick or treaters around here anymore, so I don't do much.

      I loved Halloween as a little kid. It was an excuse to stay out after dark!

      Halloween, one of the best holidays ever, keeps us young. Your haiku is loaded with quotable lines but I think my favorite is "To all a fun fright", wouldn't Santa be proud!

      Voted up, awesome, and interesting.

      We used to decorate, big time. One year, we had a live scene in each window on the front of the house. It was loads of fun, but a massive amount of work. All the teenagers who helped with the scenes grew up and moved away.

      Our neighborhood kids have dwindled from over 400 to around 80, last year. I don't even dress up to greet the kids at the door. Times change, people change. One day, I realized the energy was gone.

      You have a wonderful hub filled with great ideas.

      DJ.

      Seems to me that there's a whole lot that I could do in Orlando that doesn't happen in my little quiet corner of the world! I'd be worn out within the first 2 days!

      Hey BTW....:( what happened to poor Teddy? Was he in an accident? Some bully beat him up?......Remind me not to ask you to bandage up my wounds!! ROFLMAO!!!

      Hey Linda...I know you love Halloween. Me? Not so much. I think it may be because where I live, I don't get any little trick or treaters, so it's just an ordinary day.

      My dog is funny-looking enough without a costume and my cat would never sit still long enough to let me put him in costume! I am just ZERO fun on Halloween, arent' I?

      Save me some candy!

      Hi Annart, We also don't have as many kids as we used to, but that doesn't stop me from dressing up in costume and entertaining the wee 0nes that do want a treat, but only if they do a trick :)

      Love the teddy bear! Great haikus for hallowe'en.

      I know the children love dressing up but there are many people here now, it seems, who use it for the wrong reasons and some older people and those on their own are scared. We have notices for them to put on their doors - 'No trick or treating'. Bit sad really but there you go...

      Younger ones have taken to having parties instead or just going round immediate neighbours.

      When done in the right spirit (no pun intended!) it's great fun.
