Column Day. Today’s timely topic: why I’m not a fan of Halloween, especially the mass marketing campaign that goes with it. Read it here… if you dare.
I’ve taken some ribbing for this one today, but I’ve had just as many people say to me, “Thanks for saying that out loud.”
We still enjoy the best parts of the night, though. The two older boys dressed up as ninjas and we went to a party at our church. They ate a ton of candy, I ate all the cupcakes they won in the cake walk and didn’t finish, and we didn’t have to spend an hour freezing our behinds off in the street.
At the end of the night when the boys came home and dumped their candy on the kitchen table, Xander surveyed the stash and declared, “Veni, vidi, vici. I came, I saw, I conquered.”
