People have been wishing me a Happy Halloween over the past week here in England. Of course, I respond with a smile and a thank you, but inside I am seriously wondering why the heck they are wishing me a happy Halloween when it isn’t Halloween yet. Halloween isn’t the kind of holiday I want to linger like Christmas. Christmas is the sort of holiday that gives you warm happy feelings. Halloween is the sort of holiday that gives you the creeps. It can also give you feelings of regret on account of how much candy or alcohol or both you consumed. These are not the kind of feelings I want to stick around. I think for me one night of horror is all I need for the year. Possibly a horror film mid-summer if I really feel like going crazy. This is not to say that Halloween isn’t filled with laughter. Oh, there will be laughter and screams, lots of them. It is amazing how alive Halloween can make you feel when it is a celebration of the dead.
So, happy trick or treating everyone! Good luck and be safe!
We will be home handing out candy watching Halloween movies no doubt or catching up on The Flash.
PETS SHOULD NOT BE OUTSIDE ON HALLOWEEN NIGHT!
Be sure to keep your dogs and cats shut into their own cozy room tonight and not free to escape outside if you’re handing out candy!
