Today is Halloween. All the pancreases the country over, in particular those encased inside younger bodies, are cowering in fear. All that sugar, aiiieeeeee. If they could run away screaming, they would. As it is they are hiding behind the stomachs, clutching their blankies and whimpering.
But Halloween is so much more than candy. Here I have listed a few of the wonderful ingredients we have included in our Halloween this year, to make it extra special.
1. Obsessive sewing of spooky Halloween dolls.
2. A visit to Legoland, even though the kids are little old for Brick or Treat.
3. Creepy yard decorations.
4. A mini graveyard.
5. An amazing mini haunted house.
6. Costumed kids.
7. Finally, of course, Pumpkins, the orange heart of Halloween.
In a few hours we will be heading out for the annual ritual of trading the candy I bought for the candy that our neighbors bought. We will check out the Kalal’s haunted house down the street, and will go around the corner to see how insane the crazy people who rent out a storage unit to store all of their decorations have gotten this year in doing up their house and yard. HAPPY HALLOWEEN TO ALL!!!
p.s. Be kind to your pancreas. Put down the Tootsie roll. 10 is enough.
