Jolly Jack O'Lanterns and a Hearse - Friday's Fotos

 

 

Disney's Jolly Jack O'Lanterns

 

This hearse was decked out with smiling jack o'lanterns and Santa hats that seemed a little at odds with a hearse.  It's just so festive.  I suppose it could be a celebration of somebody's life, but it was just one of those things that caught my eye.

Christine, that does look rather festive, and the hearst might be what you would see in the movie, "Interview with a Vampire," that takes place in New Orleans.  Nice photo,

Pamela - The thought of a New Orleans type funeral did cross my mind.

Christine, Disneyland?  Great photo regardless!

Posted by Tony & Darcy Cannon, The C Team (Aubrey and Associates Realty) almost 8 years ago

HI Christine - great photo. I love Disneyland at Halloween time. It has been a while. Thanks for sharing the photo!

Posted by Sharon Paxson, Newport Beach Real Estate (Compass) almost 8 years ago

Hi Christine, I took a similar photo 2 years when I was at Disneyland and used it for my Halloween post, I think last year. It was and remains a very cool coach,:-) Always a fun place no matter the age.

Christine - So what does the pumpkin say, "Ho Ho Boo Hoo!?" :-)

Posted by John Mayer, Your Beach Area Expert (Oikos Realty, Cape Canaveral, Cocoa Beach Florida) almost 8 years ago

Christine,  I would guess the the hearse belonged to Happy Time Funeral Home.  You know Casper's favorite color is Boo and his favorite song is I An't Got No Body. :)

Posted by Don Eichler (Eichler Properties) almost 8 years ago

John - I guess I'll have to go back to Disneyland to look for a few more.

Curt - I'd like to be a little further outside that particular box ; )

Patty - Boo to you too.

Rene - It is strangely bright and cheery.

Bill - They sure did.

Steve - Festive strikes me as a little odd.

Tony - I was wondering when somebody would identify it.  Yes, you're right.

Sharon - It's just extra fun at Halloween and Christmas.

William - It's one of our favorite places.

John - That would work for me.

Don - LOL  : - )

Christine~ Did I read correctly? Was this photo taken at Disneyland?

Posted by Donna Foerster, Metro Denver Real Estate Agent (HomeSmart Realty Group) almost 4 years ago

Donna Foerster  - Yes, it was taken at Disneyland at the Haunted Mansion ride.

Posted by Christine Donovan, Broker/Attorney 714-319-9751 DRE01267479 - Costa M (Donovan Blatt Realty) almost 4 years ago

Ah ha! Seem appropriate then. I've never been to Disneyland, just Disney World. I'm sure they have something similar.

Posted by Donna Foerster, Metro Denver Real Estate Agent (HomeSmart Realty Group) almost 4 years ago

Oh, well, how appropriate for me to find this one NOW (after 6 years!!).  I love it and you should totally use it again for the upcoming Halloween season!
