I also love Halloween because as a child, it was one night a year where just about anything was possible. The dead came back to earth, witches streaked across the sky, Dracula rang your doorbell, and everything that terrified you beyond the capacity for rational thought was lurking around every corner. I love to be scared, so knowing that there's an entire day devoted to being scared and looking behind you...nothing's better!
Amd now, for your viewing pleasure, me as a witch!
Oh, and this was how I greeted all the trick or treaters at my in-laws' home this weekend! Glorious! I cannot tell you how many wide-eyes I encountered when I opened the door. I will always, always wear a costume to greet my trick or treaters!
