A Very Presidential Hallowe'en

Hey, it's an election year. Whether you like the current president or want him replaced with Frank Zappa, the fact is, the man celebrated Hallowe'en in The White House.

That's just pretty cool, no matter which party you like!

It occurs to me that the White House is probably the only house in America that you can go trick-or-treating and your mom won't check your bag for razor blades and needles. It's also one of the few places that will make cookies and cool, Hallowe'en-themed treats by hand and no one throws them out before they get eaten due to paranoia or fear.


Who knew the White House was the last bastion of old school Hallowe'en, just like we had in the 1970s?

Loving the giant spider in the background.

As an aside, I was just chatting with Mr. ShellHawk about this idea (wrong as it may be!) that the White House is the last place that celebrates Hallowe'en as it was meant to be celebrated, and he commented, "Yeah. For this administration."


Politically charged, vicious comments to start in 4, 3, 2, 1... (Children, please play nice.)


(I hate election years.)
I need to call Tim B. up when Stewie finally gives up the ghost...
Maybe he can make something like this for me!

When I pop by to trick or treat at the White House, I'll have to talk to them
about how their spider webbing technique needs some work. Honestly! You
think these webs are good enough for the President of the United States???

  1. Oooooooo...I love the eyes in the window and the bats around the hanging light! My house has these two, tall, very strangely shaped windows in the top front that would be perfect to put creepy eyes in!

  2. No viciously charged political comment from me. I love how the WH did up Halloween! (I do agree on the spider webs though.)

  5. I always thought the White House would be too security-driven to do anything for Halloween, so this is a very pleasant surprise. Love the tall pile of jack-o-laterns (I've been collecting some, but it looks like I need a busload more to do anything that effective!) Another big shocker today was seeing your comments over on Brooklyn Limestone! Are we gonna have to have a cat-fight to see who gets her fab house?? Let the hair-pulling and battling with spike-heeled pumps begin!

  6. WOW! Regardless of political affiliations (or lack thereof, in my case), I'm impressed!!!
