When I was a child, "us kids" loved to play beneath a tall fir tree in the woodlands behind where we lived. We played there so often, the earth had become packed hard like a floor. We would sweep the tree needles from the dirt floor with the fragrant ends of fir branches.
In October we sometimes would decorate our magical play place for Halloween. Paper ghosts hung overhead from long pieces of thin string, jeans and shirt were stuffed to give the likeness of a scary headless man lurking in the shadows. There were places to sit, scraps of cloth spread over crookedly devised tables. We had a some candles and carved pumpkins, of course.
But when it actually came time to go out into the forest on Halloween...in the dark. We couldn't make ourselves move from the back porch to the woods. We had so scared ourselves with ghoulish ghost stories and the like, we had become frightened of our own shadows! Still--it was a GREAT deal of fun to decorate underneath that tree.
