Halloween

I love this time of year. I miss the autumn of my childhood - the crisp air, the scent of logs on the fire, high school football games. Autumn in Louisiana is a little different...the air doesn't get that "bite" to it until after 6pm. The leaves don't really change colors, at least not that I've noticed. There is one constant no matter where I am and that is Halloween.

I think its my favorite holiday aside from Christmas. I once heard someone say "What's not to like - you don't need a date, you get to wear a costume, and it is okay to eat as much candy as you like". I agree :) I love passing out candy to trick-or-treaters. This is also the time of year when you can easily find scary movies on tv. My favorite is the "Halloween" series. I was introduced to them by my Uncle Chris when I was a kid. I basically watched through my fingers, but we watched it over and over again (unbeknownst to my mother and grandmother). To this day, I will still watch, even though I live alone and I scare myself silly. What is it about these movies that make us come back for more?
