Sometimes people carry to such perfection the mask they have assumed that in due course they actually become the person they seem. W. Somerset Maugham
I love Halloween and when we got booked to play New Year’s Eve I thought it would be fun to make it into a masquerade party. I have never actually been to a masquerade ball but I thought it would be a lot of fun and mysterious since no one knows who anyone else is. We do the unveiling at midnight. It is mysterious, alluring and romantic to me. This is going to be the best New Year’s ever for me! Well I am off to the craft store to get my supplies, watch me go now! With that I leave you with one of my favorite all time movies and the masquerade ball scene…
‘Tis now the very witching time of night,
When churchyards yawn and hell itself breathes out
Contagion to this world.
I love Halloween, it has always been one of my favorite holidays ever! It’s the one time of year you can dress up as anything and be anything you like for a few hours. I have no idea how many different costumes I have donned in 42 years, but I know that barring being sick I have dressed up faithfully every year. I have been a butterfly, a witch, Rambimbo (a female Rambo), an angel/devil, the Grim Reaper, a hippy and so many more that I can’t even remember. I think my favorite costume of all time was when I dressed as the Reaper, it was really scary because I wore a ski mask and blackened in any skin that was showing and no one could see my face at all. Halloween is the one time of year that children and adults alike are allowed to let their imaginations go wild and they get sweet treats for it. It’s a fun night for friends, music, sweets and fun, fun, fun! For an update on the band’s Halloween party last night go to EZ Street a Day in the Life for a full update.
With that I am leaving you with my second of all time favorite Halloween songs, “Dirty Creature” by Split Enz, Happy Halloween everyone!
