I don't like the dark side of Halloween.
Death, blood, evil.
Not for me.
I love celebrating the harvest season.
I love the kids' excitement to dress up in FUN costumes.
I love celebrating, in general.
A way to spice-up the everyday, right?
The Halloween parties are going on at school right now. To say Lincoln was upset that he couldn't take his light-saber due it's "weapon-like" nature in a "no weapons allowed" school is an understatement. He was sure that no one would know what he was for Halloween. Personally, I think they'll figure it out . . . sans light-saber.
As for me and the little ones, we're busy getting ready for our annual halloween feast tonight.
p.s. We haven't carved pumpkins. I'm hoping we can get through today without anyone asking why. And I'm not allowing myself to feel any guilt about this, either. However, the true test will be if Ben insists that we do. He's a festive sort of fellow.
