I really like this holiday for a lot of reasons. Here are ten of them:
1.) It's not particularly religious and there are no services of any kind to observe nor do you have to buy gifts, light candles or eat anything weird unless you really want to.
2.) Florists, Hallmark and See's Candy don't have too much of a stake in it.
3.) No retailer in their right mind has a Halloween linen sale or a Halloween discount on tires.
4.) Kids love it.
5.) There's candy. A lot of it.
6.) There's fun scary stuff on TV instead of the usual scary unfun stuff.
7.) You can dress up if you want to - but you don't have to.
8.) pumpkins pumpkins! pumpkins!!!
9.) People come to your house - mostly little kids in funny costumes.
10.) This year it's on a Tuesday, which in our area is 3 for $1 taco night at Del Taco. We get to have a treat once a week.
