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.
