Happy Halloween


  • Halloween begins today – that is when the ghouls of Halloween come out later this evening for some tricks or treats. These ghouls will include witches, death reapers, vampires, some Disney characters, zombies – and all kinds of creative outfits. But what you probably won’t see much is the headless horseman.
  • Halloween is the celebration of our dead – where we honor all saints and ancestors – that was from the 8th century to the present. It originated from a Celtic festival where the people would lite bonfires and wear costumes to ward off ghosts:

Back to the headless horseman


  • It was along this trail when Ichabod Crane return home one late evening after a disappointing night of attempted courtship. It was along this trail when he noticed that he was being followed by a headless horseman.
  • The tale is from the “Legend of Sleepy Hollow” – a short story written by Washington Irving and published in 1820. The headless horseman was a ghoul from the underneath that rode the countryside during the night with his head on his saddle – or was it a prank – Irving never says:

    INFO: images of the headless horseman bridge
  • Ichabod gets across the bridge safely – but makes the mistake of looking back. That is when the horseman throws something that knocks Icabod off his horse. The tale ends with no mention of the whereabouts of Icabod Crane. Some say he left town – other say he was taken away by the horseman – we will never know.
  • QUESTION? what happened at the end of the story.
