As the night draws in and the knocks of expectant trick-or-treaters loom I pass along an odd and seriously old-fashioned bit of ephemera.

What sort of “expectations” would anyone have of Halloween? I guess kids hope, or expect, a bag full of candy – not apples and homemade stuff (I know “homemade” doesn’t happen anymore).

Anyway, this Halloween greeting card struck me as wierd.

The highest expectations for Halloween to you [words I never imagined I’d write].



  1. Clearly a typo. Obviously it was supposed to be “expectorations.”

  3. There must be low days in the card-writing trade, too. “Ah, that’ll do….it’s only Halloween. I’m saving my great lines for St. Andrew’s Day.”
