No Tricks or Treats for me
Halloween goes in phases as we grow older. When I was young it was all about the costume and planning. See I live in the great state of Minnesnowda that’s had more than one Halloween blizzard in it’s history so as a child of the Northern Plains you need to make sure your snowsuit can fit underneath or you’ll be flashing as you say trick or treat.
Now as I got older I handed out candy and even dressed up once for my office job. I’m just not that invested in the holiday I guess. My son’s now at the age when it’s “not cool” and the less he cares about a holiday the less I do. For a while I enjoyed handing out candy to the neighborhood kids, but we’ve moved and now live on a highway. Not exactly an ideal trick or treating spot and although we did carve pumpkins the first few years I’m just in the mood for Halloween this year. I have a feeling we’ll be half way through November before my husband remembers that we forgot.
I might indulge and watch a scary movie tonight. What are your plans or have you like me been burnt out by the holiday?
