How To Make Halloween Work For You

Thought you would like this one!  Have a great day and remember to go to my website Simply Put Together for all kinds of fun freebies!

When it is Halloween, I can be whoever I want, go to places I would never go, and do things I would never do. When it is Halloween, I can be a witch or a mermaid, or even a swimming pool. My son can be a ninja or a ghost or whatever he pleases. My daughter might be a movie star or Indiana Jones. Maybe we could be a family of pirates. My husband can even be my Hawaiian groupie, complete with coconut bikini top, while I am Don Hoe. How silly.

When it is Halloween, I can do what I want. I can put spiders around the house and save dusting for later and make blood red syrup for my kids, so gross they cannot even eat it. When it is Halloween, my husband will hide behind the tree and jump out to terrify us all.

When it is Halloween, it is getting cooler and darker outside and somehow that is quite exciting.

When it is Halloween, we knock on the doors of people we don’t see all year long and we all laugh together and chat. There is always someone who is unkind, but that is so rare that it is all part of the fun.

When it is Halloween, countless strangers and friends pass each other on the sidewalk and sometimes the street, laughing and ooooohing and aaaaahing. The rustle of costumes and the loud voices of teenagers are all in the air.

When it is Halloween, we are all a little different, our doors a little more open, our hearts a little softer, our silliness a little grander. How wonderful.

This is Halloween week and we have so many frightening things happening in our beautiful country. Maybe just for this week we can all remember to keep it simple. Buy the good candy, wear costumes and revel in the costumes of others, be silly and scary and full of life and remember the joy of opening our doors to each other.

Have a wonderful weekend and enjoy Halloween!
