So at long last September comes to a close and we welcome October, my favorite month of the year. The long, dread summer is finally gone, autumn’s roots run deep, and everything changes.
October is a month of birthdays and renaissance faires, of war reenactments and paranormal investigations, of corn mazes and haunted houses, of scary movies, costumes, and Samhain. It is a time for All Hallow’s Read and D&D and Mansions of Madness played at midnight. It is a time for ghosts and goblins and ghouls and gremlins and things that go bump in the night. It is a time for horror novels and campfire tales and graveyard walks and hallowe’en.
It is my time.
So fare thee well, September. You did your job. You kicked the season off, but it’s October’s turn now.
September collects the components, but October casts the spell.
