Happy Halloween!

Ah, my favorite holiday, when all things spooky reign!

I love handing out candy and seeing all the different costumes. Though in recent years, it seems creativity has slipped a little and most tykes come to the door in a plastic, store-bought Buzz Lightyear costume. I remember the year I glued cotton-balls to my face, then had my mother apply some sort of brown goo. When the goo was combed into the cotton balls, it made them "shag" and presto! I was a hairy werewolf (boy did it hurt taking those cotton balls off, but it was a small price to pay for such a great costume).

I love shutting off the lights and watching the non-stop horror movies. I'm looking forward to the premiere of AMC's "The Walking Dead." I'm a big fan of zombies.

And every now and then, the weather is nice enough on Halloween that I can go out in the backyard and have a nice, old-fashioned, Halloween bonfire (really just a couple of logs in a copper backyard fire-pit, but hey, I live in the city-- you've got to make do with what you've got).

And did you know: the government has a Halloween page? Halloween Page
So why isn't it a national holiday?

Whatever your holiday traditions (or anti-traditions), I hope you have a safe and happy Halloween!
