It appears to be October.
My favorite month! Halloween is the reason for the season. When I was a kid, I always tried as hard as I could to freak myself out with ghost stories, UFOs, miscellaneous weird stuff. Older- and very much a skeptic*- I still try to do that, but it becomes much harder to do so. In some strange way, I see "spook-ability" to be kind of a sense of wonder about the world, and if there's truly a related fear, it's losing that.
*My wife & I had a night out in Salem, MA, last night and we went to a magician/mentalist performance (the show included psychic surgery and claimed communication with the dead and took place at an active church- what a place!). Within ~15min after the show we had figured-out all of the tricks over dinner.
