(Crochet and Non-Crochet)
|Halloween's legends include tales of creepy creatures crawling out from their dark habitats on "Allhallows Eve", October 31. Are we surprised that spiders have become a standard part of our celebration of this creepy night?|
|They're creepy-looking (that's got
to be the first requirement),
just looking at a photo of a
tarantula can make my skin crawl ...
ok, 'nuff said; it's settled.
Spiders belong in Halloween.
|Still need convincing?
