Halloween is Here

I’m not a fan of Halloween. Mostly because it gives people an excuse to be stupid.

Last year was the first time I “celebrated” the day since middle school. But I didn’t really do anything. I just wore a costume to the gym. It was funny and several people asked for pictures. But today I’ll be working. So you know what that means, right? I’m wearing a costume to work!

All week long we’ve been encouraged to wear a costume if we wanted to, and I do. But I’m not sure which one I should wear. Maybe you can help? I have a hot dog suit and a Gumby suit. Which should I wear?

How are you celebrating today?

Halloween (poem)

Halloween

Children dress up
Teens do too
Basically everyone
What about you

Witches
And vampires and ghosts
It’s hard to say
Which scares me the most

And haunted houses
That are sure to scare
Lots of screams
You better beware

But it’s not just
For kids and teens
Universities and employers
Celebrate via other means

An anticipated day
Every year
Halloween
You get back here

Suggested Reading for the Week of Halloween

I’m sure you’re well aware of the fact that Halloween is this week. Well what better time to read a horror story or something that might keep you awake at night than this week, right? But no, I’m not going to be doing the suggesting here…you are! Y’all know I never recommend books or take recommendations because my taste in reading is my taste and yours is yours. But I’m making an exception. I don’t read horror stories or anything remotely scary at all. I’ve just never really been interested, so I have no idea where to even begin. But I’m hoping some of you have a better idea than I do, and you can pass along your knowledge.

So tell me, what are some books that are sure to get me in the Halloween spirit?

Autumn (poem)

Autumn

Pumpkin patches
Colorful leaves
Cool temperatures
And long sleeves

The month of October
With its scary movies
And ghosts & goblins
On Halloween

Then comes November
And family feasts
A Thursday of football
We know as Thanksgiving

Then it gets cold
With Christmas soon to come
Snowmen and snowflakes
And farewell to autumn
