Tis the Season

Nothing brings out the kid in me like Halloween. The thrill of spooks and sweets, the rich earthy scent of decay, the savory hints of spice and onion, all these remind me of childhood. We get to dress up and pretend to be something else for a night while letting our jokester side out.

 

This is the season where the morbid becomes acceptable and even expected. Creativity runs wild as neighbor goes against neighbor to out creep each other. Petty pranks leave houses thoroughly forked and draped in long sheets of white. Pumpkins become the faces of fear and welcome the hosts to visit while driving away the “baddies.” Fantasy becomes reality and the energy of those who have passed is catching.

 

Yes, Halloween is by far the best time of year.
