As fall dawns, vampire historian and author Lyn Gibson shares more than candy
Ms. Donna L. Quesinberry, National Writing Examiner
It is that time of the year . . . summer is winding down . . . fall is creeping up and All Hallow’s Eve looms in the near distance. Pumpkins on the vine are getting plump . . . it won’t be long until apples are fully ripened. The cider will soon be brewed as costumes fly off store shelves. Our community Dollar General is already stocking up on the Halloween candies. There’s been more than a couple plastic jack-o-lanterns lurking about the store isles for impending trick or treaters and Walmart is already in full regale with Food Lion and Fresh Market fast on their heels . . .
And, that is the fun of America’s favorite fall holiday . . . Halloween. You might be wondering just where the vampires come in? Well, the fact is, vampires view Halloween as more of a treat than casual party-goers or trick-or-treaters who move past pranks, pranksters and yard displays to share costumes in and giggles in order to gain candy delights. Vampires partake of All Hallowed Eve not just as a favored fall past-time . . . rather in celebration of the fall equinox, which lends more time to engage the community-at-large with their lust-driven desires.
