I guess saying "everything" would be too easy of a way out...

Witches...because of all the ones I know
Graveyards, for the sculpture, the art, the spooky peacefulness...and what you can hear if you listen closely
Jack-o-lanterns, for the folk history and because I just like to carve pumpkins!
Gargoyles, because I love good architecture and architectural details...don't usually associate them with Halloween, but that's just me

My favorites are:

Jack O'Lanterns, cause nothing says Halloween like a malevolently grinning JOL!!

Witches, because you said it: they ARE the queens of Halloween!! I especially love a full moon with a witch flying across it. I've been talking for years about getting a tattoo of one...maybe this is the year!!

And a good misty dark old cemetery...nothing like it to get the goose bumps going!

Funny you mention that MHooch, I just got a skull tatt last year in honor of my halloween obsession. I turned a 15 year old peace sign into a skull.....how's that for symbolism?

Spooky Little girl....Im right there with you when it comes to antiques. I feel the exact same way about them:)

Cemetery's are the same for me. I love looking at old architecture and fabulous tombstones and wonder about the people there. This may sound odd but I find cemeteries very peaceful and calming.

Spookilicious,

It's the feeling that someone is standing next to me at the graveyards that can't make me quite decide if I like the feeling or not.... Like when I was a kid, climbing up the cellar stairs.....thinking.....don't run.....just walk.....stay calm......even though they're right behind me. Why is it that I never lost that feelilng???

I rented the movie Knowing yesterday and seeing all the orange leaves falling and blowing in nearly every outdoor scene along with the clips of the spooky house and foggy woods really got me going!

I'm unashamedly an old romantic...I love creepy, atmospheric Victorian/Gothic horror, so my Horror Icons are of the "old school"..Dracula, Frankenstein, Phantom of the Opera etc.

I do do gore if it's done well..Halloween, F13th and Hellraiser, for example.

I'm also a traditionalist, so my Halloween icons are the usual, Pumpkins, Witches and fog bound cemeteries..

LOVE IT!!!

Pumpkins really put me in the fall/Halloween mood. But I'm also a big fan of spiders. We have several large spiders strategically placed in corners around the doorframes in our house and every time I look at them I get a teeny reminder that Halloween is also just around the corner (for me anyway).

Can't resist this one...The icon of Halloween for me is a Haunted House and Ghosts...When I think Halloween, that is the first image that pops in my head. Followed by the jack-o-lanterns, black cats, bats and witches. Then throw in a spector or two and I am in Halloween Heaven (or would that be Hell?)

Sigh! I wish it was today!
