Vintage Halloween postcard: Running away from the ghosts

Here's a Saturday night quickie, one week out from All Hallows' Eve. This undated vintage postcard shows a well-dressed boy fleeing from a pair of ghosts/spirits/specters/phantoms/wraiths that have popped up from behind a trio of huge pumpkins and startled him. Won't he have a whale of tale to tell the folks back home? Think they'll believe him?1

The postcard was never mailed, but it was addressed to Moreau Morris (1894-1945) of Newburg, Iowa. The short message states: "Dear Friend, I wish you a happy Halloween. Cecil."

1. Have you ever seen a ghost? If so, tell us all about it in the Comments section below.

  1. I've never seen a ghost, but I once heard noises that were completely unexplainable.
