Holidays are reasons to celebrate and while some people grow out of holiday celebrations when they get older, I have yet to reach this grownup benchmark. Holidays give you such a great reason to be a kid again and Halloween is the kid holiday. A day when you could dress up as anything and get away with it (Fairy killer princess… sure!), when the only thing that matters is how many Three Musketeers you could trade for someone else’s Snickers.*
And now that we have a baby, we’re all in, it’s GO TIME, our first halloween of sorts. Halloween born-again virgins. It’s as though I’ve been preparing my whole life for this moment. Every holiday that I’ve celebrated in my “adult” life (aka without help from my parents) has been practice for this.
