Fall Favorites

#13 The History of Halloween - If I had to put these "favorites" in order, I would certainly put this at the top of my list. The real stories behind the holiday....the reasons for the customs we follow.....the truth behind the's all fascinating to me.

Many of you know that Caroline and I (and Carter, too) love haunted and historical hotels. We've stayed at several of the top "spookiest" hotels in the nation including The Stanley in Estes Park, The Skirvin in Oklahoma City, a bed and breakfast in Guthrie, etc. We tour other sites, as well, when we travel and actually seek out these attractions. Weird, I know. But, it's what we love to do. And, don't be too concerned about Carter. He's far braver than us when it comes down to ghost stories and late night talks....he passes out first and leaves Caroline and me sleepless and scared for the remainder of the night!

Back to the favorite.....check out this link from It's very thorough in its account of the "real" Halloween details. I really enjoyed it.
