Here are the three little celestial heads with their buckets and hats. They have little pits and craters on their scalps from the astroids and space debris hitting them over the years, but they still wear their smiles and grins because they know they provide part of the light in the sky each night. Little Dipper is the figure on the left and he isn't named for being part of that constellation....he has a problem with dipping into Halloween buckets stealing the goodies collected by others. When you were younger (and perhaps still today) do you ever remember blaming a sibling for eating part of your candy? Well, it wasn't them, it was Little Dipper!!! Such a sweet tooth that little guy!! (By the way, I give you permission to tell your children this story if you need a candy bar or two and didn't realize they had counted their candy.)
In the center is Cassiopeia. Now if you know the story of Cassiopeia, she was a vain woman that tried to disrupt the marriage of her daughter, and was turned to stone by the head of Medusa. Always a diva, she carries a cat scepter and Halloween bucket to collect as much candy as she can devour before returning to the heavens to spend half of her year upside down. She has gained a little weight since Posiedon put her in the heavens, but as we get older we all learn it is harder to keep that weight off!
To the left is Crater Head. This poor little figure has had tons of space debris hit the surface of the head so has lots of craters and pits. Still a Halloween fan, you see little Crater carrying a bucket to collect the goodness from Trick or Treating!
Little Dipper thanks you for taking a look at the group!! Have a great end to your week!
