When it comes to Halloween there is nothing cooler about the holiday then all the monsters that are about. Think about it! In a normal sane world that we live in, we devote a night every year to the celebration of beasts, ghouls, and zombies, where it is OK to dress like a vampire, or turn you house into a haunted one full of scary creatures. Almost defies belief how a holiday that started out as the celebration of the end of harvesting time with the fear of upcoming winter knocking on the door, becomes a time where your expected to dress up as something terrifying and receive candy for your efforts. Very neat, wouldn’t you say?
Now in our modern times, there are lots of fictitious monsters that haunt this holiday from Freddy Kruger, Michael Myers, and the zombies of The Walking Dead, to Frankenstein, Dracula, and the Wolf Man. While all these creatures are great scares to many, the classics are only works of fiction that have become commercialized boogiemen in our society. The true Halloween monsters, the ones first represented in vintage Halloween decorations are creatures based on real things. Ghosts, skeletons, witches, scarecrows, Jack-o’-lanterns and devils; these creatures best represent the holiday and olden time’s fears. People once truly believed these monsters existed, maybe they were right.
