To me, it doesn’t feel like Fall if there isn’t…
Today is October 31st.
As I sit here, drinking my coffee and savoring this delicious pumpkin spice tart I baked last night, I’m reflecting on this past month and the significance that this day brings to so many Americans. Growing up, my siblings and I were not allowed to celebrate Halloween. Without getting into it, my Dad didn’t want us dressing in costumes and he certainly didn’t want us consuming candy. (Sweets weren’t allowed in the house.) Although a lot has changed in my family, now that I’m in my twenties, I think Halloween is silly- the holiday- not those who participate. Maybe it’s because I never fully experienced it as a child, but I just don’t get excited about Halloween. I do like the treats though.
What are your thoughts on Halloween?
