October has arrived! There’s a chill in the air, leaves crunching underfoot, children plotting costume details, and savory foods on the menu. As the 31st is getting closer, we wanted to reflect on the whimsical side of Halloween: think scarecrows instead of skeletons, friendly ghosts instead of creepy monsters, and autumnal oranges instead of blood reds.
