      Itsy Bitsy Spiders
    by penumbra

October 31, Halloween. The day when children dress up in costumes and go door to door begging for candy from strangers. But it’s not just people dressing up. Some of the houses get dressed up too. In addition to the usual pumpkins and skeletons, these days you’re liable to find ghosts, graveyards, witches and spiders. Many of the witches must have been into their brew because an unusual number seem to have collided with trees, houses and even the ground. As for the spiders, you may not always see them, but you know that they’re around because of the giant (human-sized ?) webs strung between the trees and the house.
