Ready, set, carve

The pumpkins are carved (yes, one is a cat... of course one is a cat) and the cauldron is full of candy. When I get home from work, the costume will be donned (witch) and the candles will be lit! Bring on the ghouls and goblins!

Hallowe'en is probably my favourite holiday. As a child is was an excuse to dress funny (not that I needed one) and a sanctioned sugar rush. As an adult.... well it's pretty much the same! Pumpkin carving was always one my favourite things.

At the old house, we didn't really do much for Hallowe'en. The first few years I was there, I gave out candy. But I only ever got a handful of kids. Then, when I started working in the city, I was getting home too late for the trick or treaters. I did miss it, so I'm definitely looking forward to this year.

It's going to be interesting seeing what it's like here. The little complex I'm in looks like Hallowe'en Town. Almost everyone (there are about 100 townhouse units in the complex) has decorated - and some have really gone all out. Next year I'll probably do a little more decorating, but this year time and money were both tight.

(And in case you were wondering where my cat pumpkin inspiration came from...)

Happy Halloween!
I hope you get lots of trick or treaters. We don't get them anymore but I broke down today and bought some candy anyway. I'll be enjoying it tonight!
