A Belated Happy Halloween

Yep, this is late, and I suppose the photograph could have been posted next year, as Halloween will assuredly come again.  The decision to post it now was based on two factors:  the first point is that I like the subject matter of the photograph; the second is to highlight that time is such a relative concept-one often impacted by economics.  As per the calendar, we certainly have moved past Halloween-that is also confirmed by the sales on Halloween-specific candy and merchandise.  For example, I just bought a Halloween-themed coffee mug for 50% off the regular price.  More importantly, many of the retail stores in the area have their Christmas displays up and are advertising products to be purchased over the coming holiday season.

Thanksgiving, conceptually one of the most celebrated of holidays, seems to have been lost in the transition here in the United States.

Take care.
