I know Halloween can be construed as evil. I know it is a completely secular holiday. But if this is the one night of the year where a neighbourhood comes together, I do see something positive in that. If this is the one night of the year where you can strike up a conversation with a complete stranger on the sidewalk, I do see something positive in that. Halloween is what you make it: it can be dark and evil or it can be light-hearted and innocent. It gave me a chance to see my newborn next door neighbour in her pumpkin outfit: I wouldn't trade that image for anything!
Well, Mario and Luigi came home, their pillow cases full of loot. The angel returned to her house and I put the cheetah to bed, her tummy full of treats. I blew out the candle in our pumpkin and turned out the jack-o-lantern lights -- until next year.
