m is for macabre



























according to merriam- webster, dwelling on the gruesome, tending to produce horror in a beholder are among the definitions of macabre. I guess that about sums up the halloween decorations this farmingdale resident displays on his front lawn every year. and every year the macabre is always done a little differently too, keeping things interesting. remember last years?

today is abc wednesday thanks to mrs. nesbitt, and the letter for the day is M. please go here to join in the fun.

Macabre is what I do NOT like about Halloween. I enjoy remembering the fun and cute costumes we wore as kids, and the kind and friendly neighbors who gave us yummy home-made things. Today's Halloween can't hold a candle to it.
