"Hey, I have an idea. How about if we send our kids out at night in costumes that obscure their vision and have them visit strangers houses asking for candy?'
"Sweet idea! How about if we do it every year on the day of the dead?"
But since I'm practicing radical acceptance and working to not be the biggest drag in the world, I'll tell you what I do like about Halloween.
- Seeing the tiny little kids in their costumes (accompanied by parents!)
- Getting to love on the neighborhood kids
- Eating lots of chocolate with impunity
- The memory of the Halloween a couple of years ago when my husband hid himself in a big pile of leaves and jumped out to scare all the teenagers. Best. Prank. Ever!
Tomorrow I'll post some pictures of my favorite little Elmo's and Hockey Players and other such cuties.
