the rest of the festive

I've been wondering, as I've been frequently asked, why Halloween is my favorite holiday.  I don't like candy.  And I do NOT do scary.  So what is it about All Hallow's Eve that has me so... enthralled?  Part of it is because it's the beginning of Fall, and the holiday season.  And I really do enjoy all the creative aspects of it, like costume creating, pumpkin carving, etc.  But I think the real reason is because, to me, it's a mystical holiday.  I may not like horror, but I do LOVE fantasy.  I'm a huge nerd when it comes to magic.  I love vampires (pre-Twilight, thank you very much), witches, werewolves, and the Pumpkin King.  Basically, I'm a sucker for anything that isn't real.  While Christmas definitely has a magical feel to it, it's also a holy holiday.  Halloween isn't.  It's all about running wild with your imagination...  It's dark, twisted, romantic and fantastical.  It's my kind of holiday ;)
 


 

 
 




HAPPY HALLOWEEN!!!
Love, your fruit & veggies :)

PS- PLEASE excuse my nasty floors, fridge, and unfinished projects in the background. Instead, feast your eyes on this year's costumes ;)  This past month has been a blur of awesomeness!  I am totally and completely beat.  I really threw myself into this holiday this year.  It was a blast, and I loved every minute of it, but I'm looking forward to the upcoming month.  The month I like to call Bethember!  And so, during my bday month, I will completely spoil myself with calm days of planting flowers, and baking yummy muffins.  Perhaps a craft here and there, but nothing with a deadline.  I will not allow it!  And then I will top it all off with stuffing my face.  Can't wait :)  But, there's nothing keeping me from brainstorming about next year's costumes.  *B
