Halloween Eve

It's no secret to anyone who has visited our home, that Halloween is my absolute favorite holiday; it's been filled with ghosts, goblins, ghouls and gore for the past three weeks in anticipation of October 31st. What I like about Allhallows Eve is that it's not about cooking, or gift giving, or card-sending, or any other obligation, other than just having fun, and it allows even the most buttoned up of the group to act a little crazy (or, at least put away a few Milky Way bars). For the past week, Jerry and I have been holding our own little Horrorfest, watching a plethora of horror flicks, both good and not so good, staying up past our bedtime to squeeze another in. All tallied, we've watched ten horror movies since late last week, and I think we have room to squeeze three more in the next 24 hours to make it an odd thirteen.

If you—like us—live so far off the beaten path, that even the most intrepid trick-or-treaters forgo your candy bowl, don't let that stop you from having your own bloody good time this Wednesday night. Instead, grab the Twizzlers, pop the popcorn, and head to the sofa for a frightfully delightful movie night.
