Halloween 2002

Halloween 2002 was the "Adieu to U302" party, since I was moving to a duplex in Cupertino immediately after Halloween (I couldn't possibly pass up my party for the sake of moving, nor for singing at the National Cathedral in Washington DC two weeks before!) I had the original Hogwarts Celebration at the end of July, so I left the flagstone gossamer & black ceiling up for 3 months...made decorating much easier, especially when I was supposed to be packing! ;)

Since people had so much fun with the Whirled Words at the Hogwarts Celebration that summer, I added a "Spooky Scramble" where you had to unscramble the author's name to match with the spooky literature title. The total attendance wasn't as great as the record year of Halloween 2000, but we still had fun, and I had some first-time Halloween guests from the Choral Project - finally, hooray! This was the first real year for my fog machine (since I got a timer for it so it would keep the fog going without me trying to run baack into the kitchen to press the silly button!), and the first Halloween with my digital camera, so no scanning necessary...and yes, there was another Halloween Live Webcam Broadcast! Why not, right?
