We are getting closer...
Its almost that time of year again. Things are in the works. This year has hopes of being bigger than the last. I can't wait to show you all where this thing is going to go. Only a few more weeks.
Its June. Not even full blown sweltering summer yet, and I am already getting the October itches. Its early this year. At least holds out till mid-july. Time to start contemplating this years project.
Can you remember back to a time as a kid where Halloween was magic. You had just started school again and were hating every minute of it, but your only solace was that within a month, The Season would begin. The season where it gets dark earlier in the day, the air is crisp and and leaves make scratching sounds along the pavement at night. That time of year when things that were brushed off as nonsense, or make believe where now possible. The time when darkness was king. The time where reality bent ever so slightly. The nights where you were sure....something otherworldly was in fact...out there. These nights, and this time of year were, and still are religion to some. The icon, the patron saint, the figure at the altar of that religion..... The Jack-o-lantern.
The Great Pumpkin Project is a movement to bring back the spirit of those nights, and the seasons high holiday, All Hallows' Eve. Every night in the month of October, a lit jack-o- lantern is placed in a spot that looks in need of its presence. On an abandon railroad bridge, at the gates of a cemetery, at the foot of a covered bridge. Anywhere that looks as if it screams Halloween spirit. Jacks can also be placed in highly visible areas, so that the spirit of the high holiday can be felt by anyone who sees it. The project's purpose...to Preserve The Eve Of All Hallows'. To make sure that the feelings we felt as kids in the month of October live on forever. One lit Jack, for 31 nights. Hail The Harvest!
The Project is now on Instagram

I know I'm a bit late to this, as getting back to reality after a 2 week Halloween vacation has driven me mad. There were so many amazing contributions in this last batch!
So glad to see this project make so many people happy and see it spread so far.
