Halloween, How I Love Thee!!

Posted on: November 9, 2011

As many of you know I have a torrid love affair with Halloween.  I’m not quite sure what the allure is, although the colors orange, black, green, and purple have a lot to do with it.  Spiders (not live ones, of course…the immobile and plastic variety) ghosts, pumpkins, witches…I could go on but I have a feeling you get my drift.
It could be that October 31 is about one week after my birthday, and I’ve come to enjoy one as much as the other.  The anticipation practically kills me every year, I get that excited.
We decorate the second the clock strikes midnight on September 30th, and actually on November 8th of this year, the inside Halloween decorations are still up.  My helpful hubby has taken down the ones outside when he marathon raked the other day.
My sister points out that I have more decorations to celebrate Halloween, a day of spirits and ghosts and evil, than I have of decorations to celebrate “the birth of our Lord Jesus Christ.”
(between you and me, I’m pretty sure that even God likes the decorations and colors of Halloween.  After all, duh, He created them.  I wish I could trick or treat at His house. He probably has full sized candy bars.)

At any rate, my husband and I host a Halloween party every October.  This years’ party was a success, and following are the pictures to prove it…

Happy Halloween!!!!!!
