As it progresses further into September I have realized that I am getting more and more excited for Halloween. As it approaches I think about the ABC Family 13 Nights of Halloween. I know they are not scary movies but them are some pretty great ones. One of my favorites is Halloween Town, well pretty much all four movies.
This movie is fairly older and I don’t know what it is about the movie but I absolutely love it. It makes me think what a town like Halloween Town would really be like and how amazing that would be to live there. I know many say there are no such things as ghost, ghouls, and goblins, but it is nice to imagine. As you can all tell Halloween is my favorite holiday, to me though it’s not about the candy we use to get when we were children but the memories. Also going to haunted houses, picking out a pumpkin and carving it, decorating the porch, and dressing up. No matter what age Halloween is enjoyed by many different age groups. Where like Christmas where most middle class or poverty stricken families hate because as a society we have changed that holiday into received or giving gifts. The holiday is no longer about sharing it with family but buying things for others. Where in Halloween you do not have to worry about that. Yes, costumes are expensive but some of the best costumes I have seen were ones made at home not store bought. I for one will reuse my old costumes and just switch every year or I make my own. I will not spend money on a costume I can only wear one or two times a year, but some will. I am the one who will do all out decorating my own place with spooky and scary stuff but I am not waste that on a costume. Although Halloween is an amazing time of year I also love what also comes with Halloween. The hay rides you go on and drinking warm Apple cider and watching the leaves change colors. Many say the leaves changing is them dying but what I see is transformation into something even more beautiful. I know that the leaves are dying but it is the same thing as humans go through. We enter the world and transform into children, teenagers, adults, and the elderly. Once it is our time we die and make room for another human being to live their life. The leaves are the same concept, they die but once winter is complete and spring time is here New leaves begin to grow and so the cycle repeats.
So as September comes closer and closer to an end I am already plotting what to do this Halloween…should I just relax and decorate or go to some haunted houses? If you vote haunted houses how about so ideas around Pennsylvania please? 🙂
