Happy Halloween

Do you celebrate Halloween? Do you dress up and play games?
I don't, unfortunately. But I'd love to have similar experience as Amelia Gregory.
I was brought up to celebrate All Saints' Day and the idea of Halloween was familiar only thanks to American movies.

Despite being a 100% chicken afraid of anything resembling horrors or scary movies, from time to time I like to read a good story that gives me the chills and makes me think twice, or more, before entering a dark room.
When illustrating Halloween I didn't really want to include all the easy symbols like pumpkins or skulls. The scary is everywhere, right? Super scary is our self.

Please, read Amelia's thoughts on Halloween and have a look at Halloween pics of some other creatives here. It is fun to look what symbols we choose and how we play with them.

Any special stories that give you the chills? Share them if you like :)
