It was a creepy night of haunting in the hills of Foresthill. A blue moon shone down on Main Street for Halloween this year, making the spookiest night of the year just a little bit eerier.
Apparitions of ghosts and goblins accompanied by junior firemen, fairies, pirates, creepy clowns, dinosaurs and even Mr. & Mrs. Sponge Bob Square Pants. Foresthill merchants, service organizations, and town folk were once again ready for the Halloween night haunting of approximately six hundred little ghosts and goblins. It was a perfectly clear night for the trick or treaters to enjoy the spooky festivities.
By the end of evening the little ghosts and goblins, pirates and firemen, with weary feet, safely returned home with their bags of goodies to remind them of their great hometown of Foresthill. A wonderful evening was had by all, both young and old.
Once again, Diane Ford continues to outdo herself with the Halloween decorations at her residence. The children greatly enjoyed her flying ghosts, spooky witches and pumpkins of all kind. All of the town revelers enjoyed the second full moon of the month, which is what’s commonly referred to as a “blue moon.” The moon doesn’t actually appear to be the color blue — the moon gets its name from a 16th century folklore writer and back then, the term meant something impossible or absurd.
