I think the celebration of Halloween with its costumes and trick-or-treating can be a harmless way to encourage self expression and imagination - as well as to learn some social skills and partake in a piece of tradition. Traditions are fading away all too quickly in my opinion, and I hope generations to come have the opportunity to celebrate Halloween as simply a day to break out of routine and enjoy some fun safely and prudently.

As for me, I love dressing up myself, and I love seeing all of the creative costumes that the little ones wear. I love the horror movies, and the haunted houses, the cornfield mazes and the popcorn balls. I've even been known to do a little "ghost hunting" (without much luck!) and carving some of amazing jack-o-lanterns as well! As for evil in the form of demons and monsters? I don't think it needs Halloween to make itself known - and that's pretty evident just by listening to the latest news any hour of any day. I'll take my chances with putting some smiles on some little one's faces and some goodies in their trick or treat bags... and knowing that it's just about having a good time.
Have a happy, fun, and safe Halloween!
