Halloween is just around the corner. I was never the kind of kid who did the TRICK part of Halloween, but (as you probably can tell from all the chocolate drizzled into my posts), I really get into the TREAT part of this holiday. So Happy Halloween! Here are some TREATS from me. You can pretend it’s an edible message. Yum!
that when Halloween rolls around
of scary masked creatures come out of hiding and make an
lot of noise as they yell Trick or Treat! and cause a
of a scene demanding candy and other sugary
(like you and me).
The masked crazies call it fun, tradition, or even interpersonal social interaction, but it doesn’t really matter
it can make the bravest of us cower in fear
(especially if you happen to run out of candy to appease these frenzied sugar mobs).
You’ll wish for a
to be your
or even the
to protect you.
But if you don’t have any of those safety nets,
Halloween doesn’t have to be frightening, even though there are
of ghosts, goblins, Freddy Kruegers, and other nightmarish creatures roaming the streets with their glow sticks.
those scary goblins and masked villains are
of cute critters as well…
Cuddly Caterpillar babies that fill your heart with
…Pretty Princesses that are gentle as
…Artistic Animal toddlers that make you
All these wonderful, good creatures somehow survive among the more frightening elements of Halloween night (like those teenage gangs of pumpkin smashers wearing no costumes–the scariest creatures known to mankind).
So don’t be a
on Halloween and cower in your shower.
Pass out candy and make the Halloween critters (good and evil) be glad they knocked on your door.
and then, when the candy bowl runs out, lock the door, turn off your porch light, and
to relax with a good book on the couch. You deserve it.
Here are two great reads for this season, and they’re on sale until Halloween. I really loved these stories when I read them last year. This is an awesome deal! So go get yours now.
Here’s hoping the spooks don’t get you!
