Halloween is one of my favorite holidays - not necessarily because I love candy or dressing up, but I love the ambiance. Orange lamp glows and the smell of leaves, the crunch underfoot and that cool, crisp air.
Living in Southern California - I have to leave in order to experience my favorite time of year. This is rarely a problem, since I work in Seoul, South Korea at some point during October-November every year. But for the past several years of this work, my time in Korea has overlapped with October 31st. This is the first year, in four years, that I have been in the US for All Hallow's Eve.
I guess what I'm trying to get at, is enjoy some of the awesome things I've found inspiring this spooky time of year!
