    white & gold for all hallow’s eve

     

    Bring forth the raisins and the nuts -

    Tonight All-Hallows’ Spectre struts

    Along the moonlit way.

    ~John Kendrick

    May Jack-o-lanterns burning bright

    Of soft and golden hue

    Pierce through the future’s veil and show

    What fate now holds for you.

    ~ delicate garlands made of lacy dollies and white pumpkins among gold confetti, silver flatware on white linen and elegant packages for guests, tied in the most charming polka dotted ribbon . . .

    The White Witch ~ Jadis

     

    Her face was white — not merely pale,

    but white like snow or paper or icing sugar frost.

    C. S. Lewis

    Stir the fire till it lowe

    How like a queen comes forth the lonely Moon

    From the slow opening curtains of the clouds

    Walking in beauty to her midnight throne!

    ~George Croly

    The White Witch brings new meaning to the phrase cold blooded.

    She covers Narnia with ice and snow, and rules by an oppressive law

    in which she turns anyone who opposes her into stone.

    While Jadis may be one with a frosty disposition, her beautifully icy palette is one cool look.

    Dreadlocked Tilda Swinton plays the White Witch as a calculating dictator with little emotion, save for the hunger of more power and control. She despises the beauty of Narnia and though she fears Aslan, she wants nothing more than to seal her rule over the land by taking his life. Though she may not appear as sadistic as many other villains, the White Witch is not to be trifled with. After all, she has no qualms about turning everything in her path into stone, stabbing a child, or humiliating and killing a lion.

    Based on Biblical allegories, The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe showed the Pevensie kids’ journey in the magical world of Narnia to help the lion Aslan, and other magical creatures defeat the White Witch. When Aslan left many years ago the White Witch rose to power, turning the warm, green land into a frigid world of winter. But the Pevensie children are the ones who can lead the Narnians in rebellion and return their home to its former glory.

    The White Witch from The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe was portrayed by Tilda Swinton in the 2005 film.

    white pumpkins

     

    There is a lightness in a white Halloween.

    Halloween wraps fear in innocence,
    As though it were a slightly sour sweet.
    Let terror, then, be turned into a treat…

    ~Nicholas Gordon
