Before the Fall [Sep. 11th, 2014|02:42 pm]

It isn't Fall, yet. It's still summer. As confirmed by our server at lunch yesterday: the seasonal beer is a sumer ale (from the Harpoon Brewery, as I recall). There are still flowers in the windowboxes, but the shops are ready for Hallowe'en:

J., who is more alert to these cultural signs, points out the sticks for toasting marshmallows on your summer bonfire, right next to the Hallowe'en candy (I thought Bonfire Night was in November, so I'd missed this). And the Hallowe'en cards: Baby's first Hallowe'en, missing you at Hallowe'en...

Missing You at Halloween is making me giggle. I feel like it's something a ghost sends the person he means to haunt, if that person happens to be away during haunting hours.

Result! The picture was a sort 0f all-girls-together version of the Addams family (and I bought it to send as a birthday card to a friend whose birthday is not far off Hallowe'en, and who will appreciate it).

The marketers are high-fiving each other. VICTORY!

(and I'm sure your friend will get a kick out of it)

Thank you. All credit to the shop for a very fine window display.
