Happy Birthday, Haunted Mansion!

Early Haunted Mansion sketchMy wife just informed me that Wednesday, August 10th, was the 36th birthday of Disney's Haunted Mansion.

So, happy birthday, Haunted Mansion! Since you were born, you've spawned two official descendants (Haunted Mansion Orlando and Phantom Manor), and numerous unofficial offspring. There is an entire community of fans out there, and my own Carnival of Souls never would have happened without you firing my imagination as a child.

So thank you, Haunted Mansion (and the Haunted Mansion imagineers), and happy birthday. May you see many more.
