Now is the time for honesty. I really don't like Halloween. How is it possible, you ask, when she loves the fall season so very much? What I really don't like are the goblins and mummies and eyeballs. The smelly, scary, plastic masks. Those fake spider webs people string across their shrubs; the fake graveyards they fork into their lawns. I even despise the orange + black color combination. The only saving grace of Halloween are the precious kiddies dressed in homemade costumes (I'll also accept Halloween cookies). I am head-over-heels for these felted (!) tree costumes.
