Like almost everyone I know (and probably almost everyone I don’t know), holiday food is something I especially celebrate this time of year. Holding a special place among my favorites are…

Chocolate, whether wrapped in gold…

Gelt

Or tree shaped.

Chocolate trees

And fruity rugelach…

Rugelach

And sugar cookies…

Christmas cookies

And perhaps my most favorite of all, at any time of year…

Potato latkes and applesauce!

Italian artist Elido Turco loves to walk the mountain paths of northeastern Italy and photograph the trees along the way. Later, using computer mirroring effects, he discovers wonderfully expressive faces in the barky gnarls and knots.

Happy Halloween!

This house in Beverly Hills, California is known as the Witch’s House. It was built in the 1920s to serve as a movie set and office quarters for a film company. I can’t imagine a more Halloweeny trick or treat destination.

Los Angeles Times writer Alison Martino and photographer Stephen Russo went behind the scenes to meet current owner Michael J. Libow and take a peek inside his enchanting abode.

No! That’s not Michael. This is Michael.

And it’s clear to see that his home is a fairy tale inside and out. Happy Halloween!
