"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

Scary Claws and Atta-Tweeting

Our best-loved Halloween tradition is one we started on our own. On Halloween Eve (not All-Hallow's Eve Eve...so, like the 30th), if we've been really really bad all month long, Scary Claws will stop by our house and leave us frightful gifts to help foster the greatness of the Halloween spirit:

So, not only do we get to look forward to trick-or-treating (or "atta-tweeting," if you're a 2-year-old titty tat), we also get to enjoy our scary new presents all day long. Yay for presents!

I feel like it's important to carry on traditions from our foremothers, but it's more important to start our own family traditions. What traditions have started with your generation? (It doesn't just have to be a Halloween one, either.) I'd love to hear!


  1. This is an excellent tradition. I might have to convince my wife to start that one in our family.
