Halloween is like a good stock – the more you add to it, the richer it becomes. Witches, both real and imaginary, literary beings like Frankenstein and altered historical figures like Dracula are definite spices. Even modern flavoring via movies like Tim Burton’s “Nightmare Before Christmas” are now part of the holiday, and how much have the Harry Potter stories added to both Halloween and the magical mystical mythos? The millions who celebrate Halloween, especially as families, are participants in adding to and building the memories and dreams which are an integral part of the most unique of all American holidays. Halloween is Americana at its best and American Folk Artist Christopher James’ Halloween creations are sure to be tomorrow’s heirlooms. Hair-raising Folk Art
