Happy Halloween-2016

It is officially the first holiday of “The Holidays Season” and it’s such a great feeling except, what is up with our weather. It’s like 80 degrees outside and it’s Fall?? I guess it’s normal to wear shorts in some parts of the country during this time of year. Even so… Happy Halloween to all those people out there.

My 5 year old received his first Student of the Week ever this year on Friday. I was in the gym watching all the kids who weren’t supposed to wear mask, wearing them anyways and the overexcited children talking so loud because they had a school Halloween, excuse me “Fall” Party that day. It got me to thinking, why are people such babies? I remember when I was a kid and got to wear my costume to school, parade around the block, and then go eat the cookies at my party.. I had fun. It wasn’t about religion or monsters. People are just huge party poopers! Just because we dress up and act all crazy on Halloween does not mean that we are going to start a ritual and start a magic spell to possess you and some of us are Pagans. We don’t look at Halloween parties as a time to celebrate our religion.

Schools have taken every single “religion” name out of parties. Our school parties are “Fall” “Winter” “Valentines Day”. Because of course Valentines Day is not a religious party at all. Again, I’m Pagan, I do not celebrate Christmas the way the world does, but I call it Christmas, I have Santa Clause for my children, as this is something children with imaginations should be able to grow up and celebrate and have memories, wonderful childhood memories.

Happy Halloween everyone and have a safe trick or treating night. My kids are Cap’n America, Sonic The HedgeHog, Spiderman, A Pirate, and Cookie Monster this year 🙂 My husband and I have matching shirts, totally not planned but it turned out to be a great idea anyways.
