A White Halloween

Yesterday morning, I woke up to this beautiful sight. We rarely get snow around here, so it was quite a treat. I realize that snow and Halloween don't usually go hand-in-hand, but it got me to thinking about how cool it would actually be to see brightly lit jack-o-lanterns glowing against a blanket of freshly fallen snow. It always seems so surreal to see our home and our streets covered in the stark whiteness of winter. I love it. I always wish it would snow for Christmas, but it never has. I thought of how unusual it would be to combine the two--snow and Halloween--because of the contrast between them. What an interesting sight that would be! We are supposed to have another storm heading our way tonight, and there is a possibility of getting more snow. I am hoping for it. I think that I will put out one of my jack-0-lanterns just to enjoy the sight of the two of them together-- if only for this one, rare time.
