I'm working one of my last days at the bookstore today (yay!) and haven't had as much time to be here, but everyone's in the Halloween spirit, so I thought I'd share some of my favorite things about Halloween.
I love "The Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown", little kids in costumes, the good Halloween candy (mostly chocolate, and absolutely NO candy corn!), Bugs Bunny's Halloween special (Hocus ca-da-braaaa), old, black & white scary movies (like Dracula with Bela Lugosi), black cats, departments at work who create haunted houses, more good candy (remember, it's all about the chocolate), and ghost tours.
Have you ever gone on a ghost tour? Last year I went with a friend to Richard T. Crowe's ghost tour here in Chicago, and it really was a lot of fun, though we didn't see any spirits. I would have loved to have at least experienced a small little glimpse into the "other" world. The tour took us around the city of Chicago and to where some of the most famous murders and other events have happened. Spooky? You betcha, especially when it involves real people that I've heard about or read about for years. And if you go to the link, you get to hear some creepy music. Boo!
Your turn: what do you like best about Halloween?
