The pumpkins on the Tree were not mere pumpkins. Each had a face sliced in it. Each face was different. Every eye was a stranger eye. Every nose was a weirder nose. Every mouth smiled hideously in some new way.
There must have been a thousand pumpkins on this tree, hung high and on every branch….
Ray Bradbury thought a Halloween Tree was just the thing to celebrate this particular holiday, and Disneyland agrees. Every year they pay tribute to Bradbury’s 1972 novel The Halloween Tree with a decorated tree on Main Street. (For a quick summary of the book, click here ).
And given File 770’s proclivity for reporting all things Bradbury, there could be no more appropriate topic for today’s first post.
