It's the most wonderful time of the year

Where the children dress scary and neighbours are wary that ghosts will appear. It's the most wonderful time of the year!

I love Hallowe'en. It's my favourite. As soon as Thanksgiving is done, my Hallowe'en stuff goes up. I love fall and the colours and pumpkins and all that stuff. I can't wait. Lyn and I have already got the dogs costumes ready (they hate us, they really do) and I have mine planned for the Hallowe'en party coming up.

Some people don't like Hallowe'en or don't celebrate it. Some think it's about pagan people from a zillion years ago sacrificing goats. But to me? It's all about dressing up funny and getting candy from strangers. What can be bad about that??

I have gone as Cher and as a fat hill-billy girl (I wore my Dad's pants and plaid shirt and stuffed it with pillows and painted one of my teeth black). I've gone as Maud (Bea Arthur) and as an 80's girl. I've gone as Frank Zappa (with a cow even) and as a vampire. But this year? It's going to be awesome. It's a secret though. I will show you pics after the fact.

I can't wait. I love this stuff.


  1. Are you going to the party in Calgary?

  2. Nope. Saskatoon is having a party for Saskatchewanians. And maybe Manitobans. But I think all Albertans are being denied access. We have to have SOME standards.

  3. I can't wait to see what you'll be this year!! Man, I still don't have anything put together. I better get on that!

  4. Chris and Anna (one of the church old ladies) had a really funny talk about Halloween. It's her favourite and she doesn't understand why anyone wouldn't like it.

    She also thinks that it's better for your health to eat ALL the candy at once, rather than go for days and days and weeks with your teeth covered in sugar.

  5. (I think she just was justifying the fact that she always gorged herself on candy.)

  6. I LOVE that Anna loves Halloween. I can feel fully justified in celebrating the holiday now.

  7. I love Anna. And I couldn't agree more.


Crap monkies say "what?"
