The Halloween Classics

Washington Irving has scared the whiz out of people for generations with his The Legend of Sleepy Hollow. I can think of no other tale that is quite as scary or brilliant for this time of year.
If you have not seen Tim Burton's movie adaptation of this story, you ought to check it out. The visuals are both eery and beautiful. A cozy night could consist of curling up on the couch with The Legend of Sleepy Hollow, a bowl of popcorn and a caramel apple!

Since my kids are too little to be that scared, we may tune into It's the Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown. It airs tonight on ABC. This one's just as classic, in a different sort of way.

What's you're favorite Halloween story?

I love Tim Burton's version of THE LEGEND OF SLEEPY HOLLOW. Johnny Depp does a great job. There was another version of this one time on TV that starred Jeff Goldblum and it was great too, but I can't find it on DVD.
