My son loves halloween. Even though it’s really Easter on the horizon, I have been subjected to reading “Boo” by Robert Munch for nights on end. He even managed to dig up the halloween spider that we usually stick to a mirror during the actual halloween season. It is now on our living room window surrounded by the snowflake stickers that I didn’t take down after Christmas.
Halloween is such a great event, or should I call it a holiday? You can decorate like crazy, no good taste required. You can eat junk food and get free junk food from all of your neighbours. You can dress up as silly, crazy, scary, or absurdly as you wish. Plus, there’s no expectation to attend countless tedious extended family events or religious services (unless you’re wicken – do wicken’s have religious services?) What’s not to love!
