A lot of Halloween cards show the moon reacting to the action. It’s cute, it makes what could be ominous seem fun. I get it.
But it gets kinda weird where the Mr. Lunar is really getting into things.
That one is just way too into watching this kid crawl inside that giant pumpkin maw. And others show a little too much enthusiasm for whatever weirdness is happening:
I have no clue what’s going on in that card, but I know the moon is enjoying way too much.
Then there are some where the moon seems really judgy to me.
Some have a moon that is frankly, creepy and inappropriate. Leery, you might say:
Then there are some where the moon seems really embarassed to even be there. I can sympathize with these guys:
Most of them, though…I just don’t know. The expressions just don’t make sense:
I’ll just put the rest here, because I don’t really know what to say about most of them. They throw me for a loop. I love them, but I just feel like the moon is maybe the artists’ sense of “WTF AM I DRAWING!?!? I HAVE TO DO TWENTY MORE OF THESE BY MORNING!”
Found others? I know I’ve seen more, but I can’t find them right now. If you get a good one, find me on twitter (@weird_christmas) or firstname.lastname@example.org
