I love Halloween. When I was young, my folks would set up a haunted house / mad scientist lab in the basement for the neighborhood kids. My brother and I used to put a rubber bat on a pulley in the tree near our sidewalk that I would drop down on unsuspecting passers-by from my bedroom window. I went trick-or-treating waaaaay into my teens.
As an adult, my love for this holiday has not lessened. My wife proposed to me (in front of family and friends) after we had all had a pumpkin carving party. And we got married on Halloween (everyone dressed up, 1920’s style). I am also insanely jealous that Surly Amy is in New Orleans for Halloween this year. They have The Best parade and some of the most creative costumes I’ve ever seen.
What are your thoughts on Halloween? Do you have any fun memories you’d like to share? What was your best costume? What are you going to dress as this year? Can we borrow your kid so we can trick-or-treat and keep the candy?
