Did you know there are all these people out there who think Halloween is really wicked? That it’s evil? Or something? I don’t know what’s so awful about skeletons (we all have one!), or bats (there is nothing cooler than watching all the bats fly out from under the Congress bridge in downtown Austin. There is nothing spooky about it.) And I hate to tell you but there are no such thing as magic wands. Maybe you’re one of those anti-Halloween people. In that case, avert your eyes because I’ve got some orange and black pom poms that are going to freak you out!*
I happened to buy a bunch of Halloween decorations before I got my old stuff out and it turns out I have too many decorations now. So I returned a bunch of them and made a mental note to not buy anything next year. Please remind me, OK?
* I really do hate evil, devil-y things. Especially movies. I won’t go near a scary movie for anything. Even movies that aren’t meant to be that scary scare me (I Am Legend gave me nightmares for a week). So if Halloween really creeps you out, I guess I can respect that. But a bloody hand isn’t actually satanic. And while you’re at it, you might want avoid Christmas in Austria.
