September 14, 2015 — We did it, guys. Made it through another summer and another spring and another post-Christmas winter. Time to stretch, come out of our coffins, and gorge on pumpkin spice-flavored things.
Where I live in New Hampshire, the season came out without hesitation. The weekend was absolutely wet with rainstorms, and Saturday morning we awoke to a massive fog bank so thick it pushed us the rest of the way into the season. We jumped into the car, grabbed some hot cider from Dunkin' Donuts, and took off into the mist for the nearest graveyard. If I had my way, we wouldn’t return until the weather reports start calling for snow.
And you know what? Of all the OTIS Halloween Seasons so far, this one will be, without a doubt, the strangest. At least for me (My personal Halloween Season and the OTIS Halloween Season aren’t always perfect reflections of each other. I’m working on ideas to fix that). But, to know what’s weird—beautifully weird—about the 2015 OTIS Halloween Season, you’ll need to watch the video above.
And it’s that little personal jack-o-lantern that sold me.
