We had a pumpkin decorating contest at work for Halloween. This was my team’s contribution, which happened to emerge victorious:

A group of us also took it on ourselves to “Halloween-ify” the hand-drawn chalk cityscape in our office, which was a blast. No less than ten people contributed with their own little touches–bats, fog, a creepy moon, hands reaching out of graves, and so on. I can’t show you the whole thing, but below are a few select details:

Those are Dementors circling the Empire State Building, by the way. I don’t know why I drew King Kong climbing the Freedom Tower, but maybe it’s because he hasn’t perfected the Patronus Charm yet.

ghost_truckIĀ also drew the skeletal horse, which I am very proud of–even though it doesn’t look so much like a horse skeleton.

    Do you really know where Halloween Come ? Fisrt it’s a Celtic cermony at a special date (not the same as Haloween !), a special night when the between the dead and the living is opening, you can call it Samain (It as a another real name), when the christian comes with the sword and cross they can not obigate all the people to pay to they god and demand to people to forget there old ceremony, even if the christian have killed all the ancient priests. They re-name the ceremony in Toussaint (in fact they depraved the essence of the anciant cult) and they “keep” a date they ordonate in the year. ‘Cause Samain isn’t a ceremony realted to a date but at at a certain period of time and events in our universe), and the good americain thik : Hey, it’s a good idea to make money, no ? So, that where we are…

      Cyril, I appreciate the comment, but I gotta say: I’m familiar with Samhain, but there’s an awful lot of people who just want to relax and enjoy the Americanized holiday. And I’m okay with that. Traditions change, man. They evolve with the culture. We aren’t confined to celebrating something exactly the same way for 2,000 years. Relax and have some fun.
