Trees in a cemetery normally provide a calming and peaceful effect for visitors and passersby. But around Halloween, they take on a spookier air—casting eerie shadows, swaying and creaking in the wind, and providing plenty of fuel for the imagination as the sun sets.
Being a bit of a chicken, the whole idea of going into a cemetery on Halloween gives me the creepers. Especially if there are any remotely spooky-looking trees around. So here’s a few places you won’t find me tomorrow night.
And the foggy path for the win!
If you’re a little braver than me—or if you’re looking for a good scare—head on into the nearest well-treed cemetery. We’d love to see your pics on Instagram. Tag us @arbordayfoundation.
