Saturday, October 31, 2020 (Halloween)
My neighbor Susie forwarded a video link that captures the Halloween tradition of a woman who rides horseback through the streets of Chinook, a small town in Washington State. On each of the last twelve Halloweens she’s ridden, costumed in black, as the headless horseman. The locals love it.
Me, too, and so, I decided to ride similarly through my neighborhood this Halloween in the mid-afternoon hours. Friends offered creative ideas for making a headless costume, and I considered contacting my friend, Janet–a whiz at designing costumes, loves Halloween, and might costume-up and ride with me.
Meanwhile, the beginning of this holiday season keeps me busy in my part-time job at Costco. Lacking extra time and energy, I’ve failed to move forward in copy-catting Chinook’s Halloween rider. Riding headless seems an idea that’s too fun to drop, so it’s my next-year’s Halloween goal. I’ll speak early with Janet for her ideas and talents.
Tap the link, enjoy the ride: https://www.kgw.com/article/news/local/washington-womans-head-turning-halloween-tradition-rides-again/283-644808e5-c36d-4812-9101-a33f4a644d0b
Dear Friends: Innovating seasonal activities may make our traditions more fun. Diana
