This is definitely my favorite Halloween story of all time: The Legend of Sleepy Hollow.
This is the 1970 animated version for your enjoyment and that of your children.
No Halloween Evening is complete without reading this legend or watching the videos. I enjoy sitting in front of the fireplace after all the trick-or-treaters have gotten their treats and have stopped for the night. I may have a few pieces of candy left in my bowl of treats, but I prefer to have a nice hot cup of cocoa or tea. Then settle into this great adventure I visit once a year on Old Hollow’s Eve.
