The Skeleton Dance: The night promises to be a scary one. Lightning flashes. The wind howls. A tree branch in the shape of a hand seems to grab for a frightened owl that spins its head around like a top. The clock on the church tower strikes midnight, sending the bats flying out of the belfry. Two cats on gravestones fight by pulling and stretching each others noses like taffy. A skeleton rises from behind a gravestone, frightening the fur off the cats. But an owls hooting scares it, and it retaliates by throwing its skull and knocking the birds feathers off. Its time for the skeletons to dance; and they perform as no living creatures could.
