How to Enjoy Halloween

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.
