Misc. Comments

On Halloween night, fog and mist hang over the old abandoned graveyard. As a distant bell strikes midnight, apparitions slowly begin to gather: ghosts, ghouls, skeletons, trolls, goblins and all manner of scary things. All turn to look upon a particularly ugly and disgusting ghoul holding a large gong. He strikes the gong. Stillness hangs over the old graveyard for a moment, and then the smaller ghosts and ghouls begin to dance. Soon all of the creatures are dancing and prancing across the graveyard. When the largest trolls and goblins take a turn, they frighten away all the other creatures, who only slowly return when the big trolls and goblins wander off. As their time is drawing to a close, they all jump, whirl, and leap with the greatest of abandon. Then the far-off bell strikes one o'clock, and quiet stillness settles upon the old graveyard until the next All Hallows Eve.
