Happy Halloween! Are you doing anything scary to celebrate??
I must admit that I am not a fan of Halloween. I don't think I ever really was...well, maybe for the candy, but aside from that, I can be pretty much counted out of the mix. Now before you go calling me a Party Pooper, let me just say that I think it's a perfectly fun celebration for kids - and to me, there's almost nothing as cute as a little kid dressed up in a tiny lady bug costume, as Pooh Bear, or any other costume that the little ghouls don. When I was younger, I liked dressing up in fun costumes, painting my face and going out trick-or-treating with my friends. I remember being Jasmine from Aladdin, a doctor, a witch, a joker, and a baseball player, and then hitting the town with my friends to collect a sickening amount of candy. That was fun.
But then there's this whole scary movie bit that Halloween brings on....again, not a fan. Halloween is the one time, and the one time only, that I might watch a scary movie, but after that, no thank you! I am not really one who likes to be scared. I do, however, like Charlie Brown's Halloween special, and I enjoy eating anything pumpkin. But now that I'm twenty-something, I don't really see the point in "celebrating" Halloween. Finding or making a costume that I wouldn't look or feel like a complete fool in is pretty challenging, and I no longer desire to eat pounds of candy in one night. Though if it's Reese's peanut butter cups, we might have a deal. Basically, I'd rather see the little kids enjoy this day than to go out myself.
But it is Halloween nonetheless, so it's only fair that I recognize it and "celebrate" it in my own way. Today's featured quote (well, more like today's featured verse) is perfect for all those Halloween lovers and haters out there...
