I haven’t celebrated Halloween in years (since 2003) but I still love the spirit of the holiday (if you can call it that). There are not very many things NOT to like about Halloween but there are some things that I especially love.
Also for those of you going out, please be safe. The world is still scary even without Halloween. While I won’t be out partying or trick-or-treating, I will be enjoying it from the comforts of my home.
Who doesn’t like dressing up? I love it! You get to be someone/something else for one night and no one can make fun of you for it. Well maybe they can.
And after sorting, I would trade all the candy I hated with my friends for something I actually liked. It was kind of like money to me.
When Halloween was on a school night, it would be the only night my parents would let me stay out late and sometimes skip school the next day.
In high school (when I got to old to go out), I would volunteer my time to my student council to help put on a “Halloween Bash” for little kids. It’s pretty much Halloween inside our school. We would have classroom to classroom candy hand outs, games in the cafeteria, a haunted hallway, etc; lots of fun!
