Okay, I'll review even though you never even look at my writing. LOL!

The Night of the Dead
By some, it's fill with dread
To others a night of fun
Full bags of candy when all is done

This is very well written with a smooth flow of words, making for a very good read.

From a brief foray into feeling you are now sidestepping back to your scary side in this witty poem personifying holidays both religious and secular. It shows horror can be fun like your poems do.

Keep writing

A very cleverly designed, produced and skilfully crafted poems Dean. Written in slight variation of meter. With a most imaginative parody of Halloween v other celebrations. Smoothly composed in aabb rhyming, good scribing, well done, blessings, Roy

You did it! You personified all the holidays, each one thinking it's the most important, when we all know Halloween is like Christmas for ghosties and ghoulies.

Will you be seeing the movie, "It?" I read the book on my way to the UK. Scared the daylights out of me. I didn't like clowns to begin with and now I really don't.

This is a lot of fun and very original. I enjoyed the way you personified the holidays. And including King as Halloween's advocate was a great touch.
Good luck in the contest.

Ooh, looks like Casper the friendly ghost. Why couldn't you center your writing under the illustration? Wow! You really had your thinking cap on when you wrote this - so clever bringing all the celebrated holidays together. Christmas has died in a plastic kind of way. Easter, well its all about chocolate not Christ. We don't celebrate Halloween, it is your favourite I know. Keep on haunting my friend. XXK.

Gotta admit, Halloween isn't my favorite holiday as some not so good things happened in our neighborhood when the kids were small. Razor blade in apple, etc. So stopped.
BUT...gotta admit it was a great easy flowing poem. The personification of all the holidays was definitely fun. Know you had fun with this one. Cute videos too.

Dean, this is a happy variation on the usual Halloween fare - I love your idea of all the annual holidays debating their own merits and then being swept away by Halloween at Stephen King's command. I like the appropriate costumes too. The logic may not stand too close an examination - why would King have all the other holidays cornered? - but I'll grant you poetic licence on that one.

Lots of fun, some inventive writing and your usual gorgeous presentation must make this a strong contender.

Steve
