Halloween is such a wonderful celebration. When we were kids, we would dress up in outrageous costumes. Be characters that you loved. My favorite one was as an Indian princess. I was the original Pocahontas! And yelling trick or treat. Getting all kinds of candy we would never get the rest of the year! Mmm.
Halloween was also a scary time. Haunted houses. Ghosts in cemeteries. I think it allowed us to work on our fears in a safe way. This is why I love this essay from yadadarcyyada. She talks about everyone having different fears. What scares you might not scare me. And bloggers really do have different kinds of scary. She does in such a funny way, that Jim and I couldn’t stop laughing! Another way to put fear and spooks and goblins in perspective. Please go and check it out!
