    I celebrate Halloween ALL. FREAKIN. MONTH. Love it, can’t get enough, I would marry this holiday if it was legal. I work with the LA Phil, and will for sure be attending the The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari (with organ accompaniment of course!) @ Walt Disney Hall the Sunday before Halloween. Spooky, creepy, classic, and fun. I hope to see some of my fellow Los Angelenos there! http://www.laphil.com/halloween
