Not only is it an excuse to spend a full week watching horror movies, but it is one of the few times that candy contains no calories. (Shh, don't say anything to ruin it.)
I just hope I have enough candy.
Of course my favorite thing about this holiday is that it never fails to freak out the Christians:
Many Americans love to celebrate Halloween and eagerly take part in the holiday by dressing up in fun or spooky costumes and giving away candies. However, according to a recent survey, 23 percent of Christians in the US do not take part in the celebration because of the holiday's pagan roots and for other reasons.
The survey, conducted by LifeWay Research, showed that three out of five Americans celebrate Halloween "all in good fun," but 21 percent of the respondents avoid it completely. Meanwhile, another 14 percent still observe it but avoid the pagan elements of Halloween, according to Charisma News.
The pagan elements of course are my favorite part.
It took me awhile to choose my costume, but I finally settled on "The guy who's pissed off that kids keep interrupting him while he is watching TV."
Which I think is somewhat better than my original choice "The guy who has not showered for three days."
Anyhow here's hoping you have a spook-tacular holiday.
And remember if you are planning to come by my house, come early, because after 9:00 PM all the remaining candy becomes the property of "The guy who spent too much money on candy and damned if he's not going to eat some of it."
