Why is Halloween now a four day event? Is it so Halloween Stores can justify charging $40.00 for a paper thin nylon costume? Or are parents dragging out the event to rationalize buying one of those over priced costumes, that in many cases will still require purchasing three more accessories to complete?
Day four, the department stores host trick-or-treating. Day three, the schools have Halloween parades and class parties. Day two, churches and individuals host Halloween events around town. Then finally Halloween Trick-or-Treating.
All while my children nag me regarding October 31st. Not because it will be Halloween, but because they want to make sure they make it to church on time so they can audition for the part they want in the Christmas Play. Really kids...can't we get through one holiday before we worry about the next.
This morning on the way to school they started singing Christmas songs. So Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday. No one is really excited until the turkey is in the oven.
