I Don't Really Like Halloween

I've always thought it was a strange holiday. It seems more and more people are decorating their houses for Halloween in an almost Christmas-like fashion. We have 3 or 4 houses in our neighborhood complete with orange lights along with various ghosts hanging from the trees and skeletons in the yard. THIS LEXINGTON HOUSE is actually a finalist in some kind of national competition on the TODAY SHOW (Vote house # 1) I will admit, I like sitting outside (weather permitting) and handing candy to the "kids." But even that gets weird whenever a bunch of 16-year old boys walk up with baseball hats as costumes and hold out their hands. Oh yeah, and the kids who just turn and walk away without saying thank you. I usually go ahead and say "your welcome" to them because I'm sure they just forgot. Happy Halloween - the strangest day of the year - besides election day this year.

Yeah it is a weird holiday...it's like every weirdo in the nation has full permission to let loose with their weirdo selves, and celebrate death, blood, and gore. Very strange..

I don't really like Halloween either. Besides seeing the kids dressed up and handing out candy, it has very few redeeming qualities.

I think the main similarity between Halloween and Election Day is that the candidates are pretending to be someone they are not. However, I AM going to celebrate Halloween in a fashion because it was the day I adopted Effie, the SuperCat, from the Humane Society. It is her New Birth Day. She's four. I don't know what that is in cat years.

Halloween is a great time to show your neighbors just how much your Leprosy has advanced!
