Zen: Halloween Ghosts

I guess Zen and Halloween ghosts appear somewhat oxymoronic but these are such sweet ghosts. Click on the image to see the looks on their faces – more surprised than scary. In these days of highly commercialized Halloween, I was really taken with this display. I think they are homemade – I hope so since that’s my assumption. The ghosts are made of simple white sheets with faces painted on them. The thing that really made it work for me is that the corners of the sheets are tied together to create the effect of ghosts holding hands in a circle. I guess it’s not supposed to be sweet, but it is.

Hi! Found my way to your blog via Count Your Chickens. I agree that this picture is more of classic Halloween. No blood and gore but you know it is meant to scare just the same.

Thanks for stopping by. It was lighted at night but I didn't manage to get a pic. I'm sure you're right about them scaring little kids.
When you get older, they're just sweet. :-)
