If I am one thing, I am and will forever be a child at heart.
I’m a sucker for all things cute and traditional. I love baking cookies and watching Rudolph at Christmas, Green Foods on St. Patrick’s Day and Pumpkin carving, Dressing up and Horror Movies around Halloween.
One Halloween tradition I am very much looking forward to reestablishing once I have children is building scarecrows. That’s one of those traditions you really need a kid.
Some of my favorite scarecrows are from pop culture…surprise.surprise.
Scarecrow from The Wizard of Oz,
(Did you ever think of the Scarecrow and Dorothy as a romantic couple? Apparently you’re not alone. As part of the original story, Hunk (aka the human version of Scarecrow) was going to leave the farm for agricultural college. But before he leaves Dorothy promises to write to him, which some believe hints at a slight romantic vibe.)
The Scarecrow from the Batman Comics,
(The Scarecrow made his comic book debut during the Fall of 1941 in World’s Finest Comics #3. During his early days in comics it was revealed that Crane was bullied throughout his childhood and often compared to Ichabod Crane from The Legend of Sleepy Hollow.)
and my personal favorite,
the brief moment in the beginning of The Nightmare Before Christmas
when Jack was a Scarecrow.
(Jack Skellington is known as The Pumpkin King. The bearer of this title is the scariest creature to exist. Jack makes a special cameo in Tim Burton’s The Legend of Sleepy Hollow as the Pumpkin King.)
What are some of your favorite holiday traditions?
Specifically, Halloween 😉
