Our family is SO excited it’s “almost time!”
Almost time for treats, costumes, and school dress-up days. Just “three more sleeps” until I will have a princess/ballerina/fairy and a stormtrooper/cowboy/monkey/knight all geared up and ready to Trick Or Treat.
I am excited for Halloween too.
But I have to admit, I kinda got a love/hate thing with Halloween.
I hate the ghoulie, bloody, gross Halloween. I hate teenagers with pillowcases Trick Or Treating at 9:00 p.m. I deeply, deeply dislike having to worry that, if I give the teenager-moochers-TrickerTreater-freeloaders and attitude, the eggs that will very likely fly afterward just may NOT come off my siding.
I hate that I have to stalk the TV. Even the kid channels have creepy stuff on it this week. One minute our 6 year-old is happily watching Scooby Doo, and the next he’s shrieking about the scary show that just came on with drooling ghouls and crazed PMSing bats.
Hhheeelllooo Mr Nightmare.
Yeah, there’s a few things about Halloween I could just do without.
But then again, there’s plenty of good stuff too.
I (we) love candy! CHOCOLATE candy. I have a weak spot for M&M’s and 3 Musketeers. *drool* slurp*. Have I ever raided my children’s Halloween bucket for a tasty treat between the hours of 9:00 p.m and 5:00 a.m.???
Noooooo….heavens no. Not me nope. Noper. Nopey Nope Nope.
I love sweet fairy princesses, fuzzy Care Bears, and even an annoying Dora or two at my doorstep. I love the smiling scarecrows, grinning Jack-o-Lanterns, and not-so-scary witches. I REALLY like the social part of this holiday. For us, it’s almost the social event of the year. Friends stop by, visit a moment, and move on. No entertaining or even that much housecleaning required. I like that ALOT.
My numero uno favorito thingo about Halloweeno is;…..
No required “hanging with the rellies“. YupYup. It’s relatively “relative free”. (insert sigh of relief here). Yeah. This holiday rocks.
