I wait for this night, impatient and excited. I love everything about Halloween. I love the pumpkins, the costumes, apple cider, trick or treating, candy, spooky decorations...I love Halloween. After a few cancelled Halloweens due to bad weather, no power, and snow, I am thrilled that we have a real Halloween for the second year in a row.
When we moved to our town, we met a neighbor who grows giant pumpkins, another who puts together the most amazing Halloween display, a Main Street filled with tons of trick or treaters and more amazing decorations...and I knew immediately that this was the perfect place for us.
Last night, we ventured out with our trick or treaters and saw spooky zombies and beautifully lit up houses, wandered through fog, ran into friends, and carried home bags full of treats.
Each year, my neighbor's Halloween display is my last stop. There is so much to see, I need to stand there and take it all in. As much as I don't like to be scared, he somehow manages to put together a display that is spooky and dark without being too scary.
