This is so cute and loved the creative humor in it! I liked the personification of the holidays and especially the costumes that they wore. It used to be a fun time for kids but it's just not the same anymore.
question:
"Valentine's asked as chocolate dripped down her chin." (wondered why the 's after Valentine?)

Hi Dean, I think you have mentioned before that you actually know Mr King, well I'm sure if he gets the chance to read this he will love it.
I know you guys over the pond really love Halloween and this writing really ignites that passion, wonderfully written, visually remarkable, absolutely memorable.

    I wouldn't say that I "know" him exactly, Mitchell. It's not like we're bosom buddies and go places together or anything like that.
    But I do have lengthy conversations with him via my Facebook author's page.
    Thanks very much for reading and commenting.

This is such a well written poem, clever and fun. It brought a smile. I liked the way you have composed the piece with humor. Many people do consider Halloween their favorite holiday. Marilyn

Hello Dean
I thank you for posting your Halloween... with the King of terror and how you compared Halloween to other festive days during the year;
and
Halloween is a time of celebration and superstition. time to dress and pretend who you aren't

Good afternoon, Dean

The rhyme and the images were beyond great. Loved how you gave each holiday a voice and their various reactions upon going trick or treating. One of your best posts to date!

Take care and stay safe,

Ray

Absolutely fabulous! 31 days and counting till the big day... it's a huge holiday at our house as my husband was born on that day. He was an only child to a single mom and I always tell him "your poor mom" she got tricked (no treat)! I love how you go through all the holidays on this fine piece of work, nicely done. You also put me in the mood for Halloween: 31 days away, yah!! Have a scary day!!!

Dean, this is a wonderful Halloween poem. It gets my vote for sure. Great personification and rhymes. I used to go all out for Halloween dressing up, decorating, etc. Good luck with your haunted house this year--a wonderful and generous thing to do. Good luck in the contest, my friend~Debbie
