Happy Halloween!

The pumpkins are carved and the candles are lit. Maybe tonight will be a good time to re-cant my spell from my Scottish author friend, Janice Horton’s recent Spellbindingly Fun Blog Party. It’s a good spell, not a bad one, as in keeping with her #voodoo blog party rules.

So here’s my spell to make my novel a best-seller…

I call upon you, Northern Lights
Take this parchment paper bright
Wrap my novel in it tight
Tie with a sprig of Scottish heather
Anoint it with haggis scented oil
Which represents the extent of my toil
Lay upon it a silver spoon
Powers of which make me swoon
Glowing moon stone, oh so stellar
Make my novel a best-seller.

And in keeping with true House of King tradition, the skeletons (including a new one), the flying bat, the headstones, are at the ready. And I’ll be sporting my witch’s wig and this year’s addition to the costume – a long, black cape. Will post pictures once everything is set up.

By the pricking of my thumbs, something wicked this way comes… cackle, cackle, cackle…

So will you go out trick or treating – or guising as I’ve seen it referred to in Scotland? Any special Halloween traditions you uphold? I’d love to hear about them. Leave a comment and tell me what things you do to make Halloween fun for the little ones.
