Good morning! Can you believe that Halloween is Friday? Seriously, where does the time go? It seems like Fall just arrived.
I have been thinking about Halloween this week, perhaps because as I take my walk each morning I am amazed at the the decorations, and I am not talking about cute jack-o-lanterns. Entire yards are decked out like haunted houses, with "dead" bodies, frightening ghouls, goblins, scenes from the walking dead, zombies, horrifying witches, ghosts and so much more.
I have to be honest, Halloween is not my favorite holiday. Yes, as a child I loved dressing up and going to parties and trick-or-treating. My costumes were sweet and sunny, I was Glenda the Good Witch from the Wizzard of Oz, or Little Bo Peep and one year an M&M. I refused to dress as something scary.
My favorite part of the day was dumping out my pillow case and checking out all of my tasty treats. Back then I LOVED Snicker bars. and those peanut butter candies in the orange and black wrappers.
My least favorite place was walking along the dark streets, with my siblings, scared to death that something horrible was going to jump put of a bush and carry me off to who knows where.
I know it sounds a little dramatic but that is how I felt and it is probably why I do not like scary movies, and stuff like that now.
What about you, are you a fan of Halloween? Do you have a favorite costume that you used to wear? Do you decorate your yard with pumpkins or do you decorate with scary things?
Whatever the case, I hope that you have a fabulous day and that come Friday you are visited by lots, and lots of little ghosts, goblins, varies, princess and more!
