Halloween is one of the best days of the years. Let’s face it–it’s a holiday that is about candy. What is there not to love?
There are no family obligations. No presents for picky relatives. (Not that any of my relatives are picky–especially the ones who read this blog. Love ya!) You buy a couple of pumpkins, carve ’em up and throw them on the front porch. Then you buy more candy than you should and you hand it out to adorably dressed children. (I don’t much care for the 16 year olds that put on one of their dad’s ties and show up at 9:30, with not so much as a word–just an outstretched hand.)
And that’s it! That’s Halloween.
UPDATE: I just found this article about teens who trick-or-treat. Seems I’m not the only one who is annoyed.
