The Countdown Begins - 2012 Poster

Dusk settles early as a bloated, pale yellow moon reaches to the sky. A brisk breeze wisps through withering, golden foliage. A lone leaf breaks from its perch and falls silent and lifeless to the cold, receding earth below. Change is among us...

And thus, we begin anew. The season has transformed and October is upon us. Welcome to Highbury Cemetery's third annual kickoff to the Countdown to Halloween. The final run-in towards the magical holiday for spooks, spectres, ghouls and goblins. 31 posts in 31 days, all in anticipation of All Hallow's Eve!

We can't wait to get the daily posts flowing, counting down the nights until the arrival of the trick-or-treating hordes, braving their fears to enter our haunted grounds. Be sure to stop back daily as we dig deep to bring you anything and everything Halloween, from new home haunt props and how-tos to photos from seasons past and even some freebies for all of our faithful followers and friends.

So sit back, grab a cold beverage and enjoy the journey with us! And stop by the Countdown to Halloween. They have an enormous list of fellow bloggers who are coming along for the ride!

To kick things off, I'd like to take the wraps off of this year's poster. It's a little something I put together every year, and the design will be used for our annual t-shirt (among other things!), which is given out on Halloween night as a thank you to everyone who helps put Highbury Cemetery on. Because without them, we couldn't do what we do. Year number nine, and there is no sign of stopping!

A big thanks to Chad Savage and Gary Pullin, as I used their free font Ghoulish in this year's art. Chad has a slew of great Halloween-themed free fonts at his site here.
