Family traditions are the best. We watched Two on a Guillotine-1965 and it secured my passion for scary movies. My favorite movie is the 1963 black and white version of The Haunting. My kids LOVE scary stories!
How wonderful to have Halloween traditions (all holidays, actually) that are family-based. Mother loved spooky stories. Before TV and out of radio's reach, she loved to read them out loud for entertainment.
The roaring twenties costumes were wonderful. My mother made one for me when I was in 4th grade and I'm pretty sure I wore it until it fell apart. That's a great memory to have with your mom.
As I was reading, I was imagining a tiny fairy launching herself down flights of stairs at lightening speed with huge freaked out eyes! I'm sure at the time it wasn't funny but it is hysterical now. Thanks!
