Wikipedia: Halloween...also known as Allhalloween, All Hallows' Eve, or All Saints' Eve, is a yearly celebration observed in a number of countries on 31 October, the eve of the Western Christian feast of All Hallows' Day. In the liturgical year dedicated to remembering the dead, including saints (hallows), martyrs, and all the faithful departed believers. Within Allhallowtide, the traditional focus of All Hallows' Eve revolves around the theme of using "humor and ridicule to confront the power of death."

VampireIt is in that spirit of humor and ridicule that we present our tribute to this fun holiday.

A headstone, or gravestone is a marker, usually stone, that is placed over a grave. They are traditional for burials in the Christian, Jewish and Muslim religions, among others. In most cases they have the deceased's name, date of birth, and date of death inscribed on them, along with a personal message, or prayer, but they may contain pieces of funerary art, especially details in stone relief. In many parts of Europe insetting a photograph of the deceased in a frame is very common. Some old gravestones had the inscription "R I P" - an abbreviation for "Rest in Peace."

Some gravestones have humorous inscriptions.

Our graveyard has five markers that seem to dance to the eerie music.

A pumpkin is a cultivar of the squash plant, most commonly of Cucurbita pepo, that is round, with smooth, slightly ribbed skin and deep yellow to orange coloration. The thick shell contains the seeds and pulp.

Pumpkins, like other squash, are native to North America. Pumpkins are widely grown for commercial use, and are used both in food and recreation. Pumpkins are frequently carved as jack o' lanterns for decoration around Halloween.

We have two talented pumpkins who do both the talking and singing in our spooky songs.

In traditional belief, a ghost (sometimes known as a spectre (British English) or specter (American English), phantom, apparition or spook) is the soul or spirit of a dead person or animal that can appear, in visible form or other manifestation, to the living. Descriptions of the apparition of ghosts vary widely from an invisible presence to translucent or barely visible wispy shapes, to realistic, lifelike visions. The deliberate attempt to contact the spirit of a deceased person is known as necromancy, or in spiritism as a séance.

The belief in manifestations of the spirits of the dead is widespread, dating back to pre-literate cultures. Certain religious practices—funeral rites, exorcisms, and some practices of spiritualism —are specifically designed to rest the spirits of the dead. Ghosts are generally described as solitary essences that haunt particular locations, objects, or people they were associated with in life.

Our Ghost joined us in 2014 and seems to be a friendly spirit. Look for him to "slimed" during the song Ghost Busters.

Viewer Comments:

Wanted to share another reaction to your lights.  Last night we drove by - twice -  and parked with our granddaughters, almost 6  and 2 1/2.  The older one  said "awesome and cool" - like Jack did last weekend -  "this is the best graveyard I've ever seen."  It surprised her to hear the music coming from our car radio, she liked it, one of the songs we heard was the Monster Mash.   Can't wait until Christmas! - Sara

The show is totally amazing We loved it; but how do you get the music to be synchronized with the lights? - Peg          (For an explanation of how the technology works visit the lights home page).
