Let's Oogie Boogie Our Way Into Halloween!

There's children throwing snowballs instead of throwing heads. They're busy building toys and absolutely no one's dead!
- Jack Skellington, The Nightmare Before Christmas.

The nightmare before Christmas has officially commenced in the Stryker household! Muahaha!

With everything that is going on right now, it seems like it's going to be a pretty mellow trick-or-treating season but it's okay. The show goes on. C'est parti!

This is Halloween, this is Halloween! Pumpkins scream in the dead of night.

How many of you found yourselves humming this classic Disney Halloween tune when you saw the title? I definitely did while writing this.

Speaking of the title, the yuletide reference certainly inspired one of the key decorations for this year - a Halloween Christmas tree! To align with the ghoulish theme of the season, I avoided decorating the tree too much like an actual Christmas tree, opting instead for a desolate look, spruced up slightly with some black satin ribbons and topped off with a witch's hat (though I think the Mayor's Hat from the movie would have been a better choice). Hehe!

While you tour our 'haunted mansion', you may spot Mr Skellington's ghoulish silhouette adorned on my claws!

Thanks to Amanda and @indulgencenail’s noteworthy distancing measures, I got to enjoy a little me-time and the only thing frightening was seeing her conjure these spook-tacular nail designs that are to-die-for! 👻

Now let the carn-evil begin!

They say we look alike, alas, she could not get home before midnight and now a pumpkin she will forever be! 🎃

I hope you enjoyed my little home ghoul-log.

Bugs, hisses and Halloween wishes,
