“Some people are born for Halloween, and some are just counting the days until Christmas.” ~Stephen Graham Jones
It’s no secret that I’m a major Halloween fan. Every year, I eagerly await the start of the spooky season, and usually start decorating on October 1st. One of my friends calls me “The Halloween Queen” because she doesn’t know anyone who collects as many Halloween decorations and accessories as I do. To be fair, some of those items (including a set of Halloween wine glasses) were gifts from others who’ve indulged my affection for the holiday.
For me, Halloween always stirs a cauldron of happy childhood memories — making costumes with my mom and trick-or-treating with my dad. Year later, it still gives me a reason to get dressed up and get silly — to rouse the spirit of fun when darkness falls. And who couldn’t use a little fun right now? Halloween is the big good-bye party we throw for autumn’s final weeks. Bring it on, I say! ~Cindy La Ferle
