Happy Halloween!

Halloween is perhaps one of my favorite holidays. Ok, it pretty much is my favorite. Most of the other holidays are anticlimactic for me, but that's another blog entry altogether.

Halloween. It's fun to say, say it--hal o ween...hollow een...hall o weeeeeeeen.

Halloween. It's one of those sacred rare occassions when you can be something else or someone else and it is perfectly acceptable.

Halloween. The expectation of the day is that you will not be normal; you will dress up and act a little silly or crazy or psycho, thus letting one of your inner selves emerge at least briefly.

Halloween. It's a day to let out all those creative ideas and decorate and express your inner child.

Halloween. It's a holiday where there aren't a lot of expectations regarding family and you don't have to spend money on gifts people could really give a shit less about.

Halloween. It's really a holiday for creative people.

Halloween. It's about roasted pumpkin seeds, carving the coolest jack-o-lantern, "It's the Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown," trick or treating and of course candy.

Halloween. It's better with a homemade costume rather than a store bought costume, even though when you were a kid you always wanted the store bought costume instead of the homemade costume.
