Our friend is visiting from out of town. He doesn't get to experience four seasons where he lives so he usually visits in the fall. The leaves are changing, the air is cooler, the food is yummiest. We try to cram the entire Autumn experience in one week and it's so much fun. It always involves Hocus Pocus( which actually is one of my favorite films anyway!) and some good red wine. Since this October has not involved a hurricane/super storm/blizzard we went to Van Cortlandt Manor for The Great Jack O'Lantern Blaze. Husband and I went once before, maybe 4 years ago. It's a wonderful way to ring in the spirit of Halloween. And Halloween is a big deal 'round here!
Until next year, Halloween!
