Ok, so when most people use that phrase, they are referring to Christmas but not for someone who has a secret morbid side and loves the occasional ghoulish treat. And, now that it’s October, it’s Halloween decoration time! While packing to move, I discovered I have an abundance of Halloween decorations followed close behind by St. Patrick’s Day then a few decorations for Easter and Valentine’s Day. Because I was always home for Christmas in college, I never acquired any personal decorations. Now, while I am sure over the next few year’s my home will begin to look like the Griswald’s come December, for now, my holiday is Halloween and starting October 1 those decorations came out of storage!
I don’t know what it is about this holiday, the start of fall, pumpkins covered in glitter, spooky undertones of goofy cats and witches, costumes... but I LOVE Halloween! Correction, while I do enjoy the occasional scary movie (especially bad ones), the Halloween I love is the sparkly black, purple, orange and green kind (none of that gruesome stuff). I HATE haunted houses but I love trick-or-treating and costume parties. I can barely afford to feed myself but I am still going to buy a few lbs of candy, dress up in something goofy and pass out candy to trick-or-treaters! I am SO excited!
