The Leonard Cohen-Infused Halloween Celebration
Over the years, Cohencentric’s predecessors accumulated a significant number of items associated with Leonard Cohen and Halloween (how many other sites need a Leonard Cohen Halloween category?). So, as the shopping days left until DrHGuy’s birthday dwindle down to a precious few, he traditionally offers readers a Halloween distraction to bind the anxiety generated by the anticipation of the November 1st double holiday: All Saints Day and DrHGuy’s natal celebration.1 If you’ve already purchased and wrapped your birthday gift, feel free to indulge in this year’s Cohencentric Halloween Homage to Leonard Cohen.
This post features the original iteration of the Leonard Cohen Halloween Mask, first posted Halloween 2007.
The Leonard Cohen Masked Ball
If you want a lover
I’ll do anything you ask me to
And if you want another kind of love
I’ll wear a mask for you
From Leonard Cohen’s “I’m Your Man”
What better way to celebrate Halloween than to don a genuine, way cool, high quality, do it yourself, Cohencentric certified Leonard Cohen mask?
