Yes, it's the scariest time of the year.
It isn't because of Cher Crow.
It's not Halloween candy, because people are figuring out how to give it out safely. (We aren't going to this year, though.)
It's not Halloween weddings.
Or pumpkin people hot dog vendors that make it scary.
It's not a black and white cat taking a stroll in the park.
It's not gravestones in an old cemetery. No, it's something else. A full moon tonight, and a blue moon help. But this is what is scariest of all:

Tomorrow the clocks turn back.
