I love Halloween.
In fact, I might love it more as an adult than I did as a kid.
I still love a great costume.
There’s nothing better than the anticipation of putting it all together and making a grand entrance.
I’ve dressed as just about everything under the sun.
I’ve been Big Bird,
I’ve been Hello Kitty (yeah, that’s me in that big Hello Kitty head, and no, I couldn’t see).
I’ve been the Osbournes.
Beth and Dog,
I’ve had costumes that were a little shocking,
and maybe a little politically incorrect.
But you know what made each one of them really, really fun?
They happened once a year.
Not 13 times.
What happened to having Halloween once a year?
Can’t even holidays be special anymore?
Where is the build up?
Where is the appreciation for that one night a year?
Is a trunk-or-treat in every parking lot in the state of Connecticut really necessary?
How much candy do the kids need to accumulate?
No wonder our kids are turning into self-centered wimps.
There’s no waiting.
Everything is instant gratification.
Over, and over, and over again.
Well not me.
We may hit an extra party.
And they can wear their costumes as much as they want at home.
But this mom is keeping the treat in trick-or-treat.
