Happy All Hallow's Eve! It only seems appropriate to dedicate a whole post
entirely to Halloween, for it is my favourite time of year. Oh, how I miss running
from house to house with my sister, eager to get to as many as possible before
the porch lights were turned off signifying the end of the night. I can still vividly
remember how excited I was to see Hocus Pocus in the theatre with my older
brother and mom, and how much it frightened me at the time. I'm proud to say
it no longer scares me! Or the joy in deciding to be absolutely anything my little
heart desired for a night - although I still feel like that to this day. And while I did as
much Halloween-ish stuff as I could (pumpkin decorating and carving, dressing up,
eating lots of candy), the night isn't quite as magical as it was when I was a kid. I'm
guessing that's what parents do, they get to experience the joys of being a kid for a
second time witnessing their child's innocence and excitement. I dressed Kobe up
and brought him door to door, hoping we could join in on the trick or treating, but
people were just not having it. C'mon, dogs can totally eat chocolate. Anyways, off
I go now to watch Zombieland with some friends and eat myself sick with candy!
I hope you have wonderful (and spooky, if that's your kind of thing) Halloween!
