Graphics & Fonts: The Call of Halloween

You’ve had a busy couple of weeks, perhaps months. Maybe you’ve been working on something else. And all around you in stores, cafes, and even your local grocers, your eyes have been seeing nothing but grinning pumpkins, smirking black cats, makeshift cotton cobwebs, rubber spiders, and plastic skeletons (at least, we hope they’re plastic…). Also, the amount of candy and chocolate on store shelves have been seeing an increase, right beside the bubbling cauldron and the cashier wearing a witch hat.

He must be sweating under that, you think inwardly, as you watch him bag your groceries. Why is he even wearing it, you wonder as you slide the cash over the counter to him.

Hold up.

It’s Halloween! Your mind snaps to attention as your heartbeat quickens. The chorus to Tim Burton’s Halloween Town blends into the cacophony clicking around inside your head like a broken record. You stand frozen in place as your palms start to get clammy. The equally sweaty cashier asks if you’re alright.

“I forgot,” you mumble into the collar of your jacket. “It’s Halloween tomorrow.”

The cashier exchanges a loaded look with the next person in the queue behind you. You grab your groceries and barrel out of the sliding doors to your parked car. As you pull into your driveway, the realization that your place is the only undecorated one on the block fills you with dread.

“What am I gonna wear?” hollers your son from the window fifteen feet up from the driveway. “Did you even buy pumpkins?”

Your first answer is for him to pull an old white sheet over his skinny frame and join the classic ghost movement. But it’s 2018, and your son has grown out of old sheets. Your son heaves a deep sigh gathered from somewhere around his knees and slams the window shut. You feel a strong, growing urge to pop a Xanax. Maybe down it with some wine.
