This week's question comes from the wonderful Jenna Da Sie:
What was your favorite Halloween costume you've ever worn? Where were you and what did you do?
My childhood was not traditional, so I didn't get dressed up every year and go trick-or-treating. I don't remember any specific activities, so no one party or adventure stands out. But, that doesn't mean I don't love Halloween. I do and always have. It comes when the weather has just turned cool and the leaves are a riot of color. There are giggling children everywhere and people let their imaginations run wild.
Halloween brings the paranormal to life. We believe that spirits rise and walk with us and spooky things surprise from every corner. We tell ghost stories and shiver with delight.
Everyone likes a good (safe) scare now and again and ghosts and goblins are nothing compared to what goes on in real life. Halloween makes terror manageable. And isn't that nice, for a change!
