"A (wo)man should hear a little music, read a little poetry, and see a fine picture every day of (her)his life in order that worldly cares may not obliterate the sense of beautiful God has implanted in the human soul."- Goethe

We've been really bad this year...

...so Scary Claws made his customary visit to our house October Eve. I'm certain it's because we left him this sign and a great letter telling him how bad we've been and what we wanted for Halloween:

True to his dastardly self, Scary Claws brought some extra tricks along with his treats. The thing we wanted most for Halloween was a giant spider for our spooky tree outside, and he brought one for us! He also brought us some more tombstones for our ever-growing cemetery and lots of cool props for our costume room. Too cool! We've been sure to put our new toys to good use and make Scary Claws proud.

So, who is this Scary Claws fellow, and why does he bring our family Halloween presents and not yours? Well, he is the lesser-known brother of sweet old St. Nick and has the same generous streak in his blood. It must be genetic. However, he has a love for the macabre, which aligns perfectly with Halloween. He's always prompt in bringing presents on October Eve so that we can fully enjoy the benefits of his gifts in time for the holidays. Mostly, though, scary Claws comes to our house because we invite him, and I'm sure he'd love to come to yours too if you did the same. Just be warned that he only comes if you're a little more wicked than usual.

  1. Scary claws sounds like he could rip my head off. Anyway, looks neat this year. Wish I could make it down during October so I could see everything Scary Claws gave you guys.
