One of the highlight’s of the season is a Halloween costume party thrown by our local, Unitarian Church. Every year, on a Friday evening close to Halloween, the UU children are treated to an evening of themed crafts and pizza and games. It culminates in a candlelight tour of the “haunted meeting house.” This year, the children took a fairly sedate trip through the darkened meeting house while atmospheric music played in the background. There was nothing overtly spooky to the experience, but the shadows cast by the church’s old architecture played tricks on the mind. My son loved it. It’s a welcome contrast to the busy streets of Salem filled with drunken revelers, hectic traffic, and adult venues.
