How to Enjoy Halloween

By Kacy Faulconer |

What’s the deal with all the haters who don’t like Halloween? It’s the best holiday. The components of Halloween are Fall, costumes, and candy. What’s not to love? Besides that, Halloween is the entrance to the Holiday corridor of Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas–The trifecta! And the trifecta of the trifecta is treats, getting out of school, and presents.

What’s the matter with people? Of course, I say this as a mommy blogger who is saving for ComicCon instead of Blogher, who owns my own chestnut wand with Phoenix Feather core, who has never gone gluten-free or sugar-free or even candy-free for a single day.

Obviously, Halloween is a day centered on my values. I celebrate it whole-heartedly. It’s not for everyone, clearly. But if this post doesn’t convince you to get into the spirit of things then maybe Halloween just isn’t your bag. In that case–only after you’ve looked at this slideshow–I recommend you contact your nearest Jehovah’s Witness branch and sign up. You’ll love it.

How to Enjoy Halloween

It's Not A Beauty Contest

Don't limit yourself to being a sexy witch. Halloween is so much more than that and once you let go of your vanity, the sky is the limit. I always look hideous on Halloween because I listen to my heart instead of looking in the mirror. If my heart says "Joker," I say, "Where's the green hair spray?" Vanity, thy name is seductive vampiress.

    I concur vehemently with the components and sum of this post. I have been working on a Halloween playlist on and off for a year now, and I think we’re really getting to a good place. Also my oldest child dressed as Danger Mouse once.

    I am the house that gives out Dum Dums. Because for the past three weeks I have had every single kid in the neighborhood come and eat all of our Dum Dums all day. So I am giving them what they want.

  3. Kacy Faulconer says:

    And you are right to do so, La Yen. Godspeed. Layne–are we friends on Spotify?

  4. Layne says:

    Kacy–no, we’re not. I have just now realized that I’m too stupid to use Spotify. I can’t even figure out how to get new music on it.

    Dede–I wish you lived in our area. Frosties are the best.
