There is no denying the fact that Halloween brings quite a stir of energy. There are fireworks popping in the air, bonfires being lit and people of all ages are encouraged for this one night to forget who they are supposed to show up as and can become whoever they want. For one night you can walk down the middle of the street, in the dark, wearing whatever crazy thing makes you feel good and run into your neighbours doing the exact same thing! And of course there is candy.
I love Halloween, I always have. I love the decorations and the smell of fireworks. I love dressing up and seeing everyone else all dressed up. I love watching kids so proud of who they have become. I love that we open our doors to each other and give treats. The whole thing is crazy really! I love it.
Halloween reminds me that life is not always so serious and it’s fun to be silly. It’s fun to forget what time bedtime is, how much sugar is in candy and if you are dressed appropriate to go out. Life goes quickly and although there is something to be said for the "order" we set for ourselves there is also something to be said for once and awhile just showing up, having fun and maybe even eating candy.
Have a safe and silly night,
