I use to love Halloween. Really, really love it. It was my favorite holiday. I would look forward to it every year and start decorating in the middle of September. I would go all out. Tombstones, zombies, spider webs, body parts and Jason Voorhees in the window were just a few of the decorations in my Halloween arsenal kit. But these past few years I have become indifferent about it. I don’t even decorate for Halloween anymore. I don’t know if it’s because Raven is at the age where she cannot trick or treat anymore or if it’s because our home is located off the beaten path so we don’t get trick or treaters, but I just don’t get excited about Halloween anymore. Or maybe it’s because I’m getting old and the magic of October 31 has all but left me.
I do still get excited about Christmas though and have all ready started planning how we are going to decorate the house this year and what goodies I’m going to bake. And despite my husband’s reservations, the Christmas decorations are going to start coming up in early November.
