Random Halloween Babble

Well, it’s that time of year again. Goblins, ghouls, and Star Wars characters will be roaming the streets begging for candy. I’ll admit it right up front; I’m the Ebenezer Scrooge of Halloween. I just don’t like it. Didn’t like it as a kid either. Bah humbug to booos and vrrrmm vrrrmmms (light saber sound effects).
Now, that being said I will confess that I have enjoyed 2 Halloween’s in my life. One was my junior year in high school when I hung with a group of about 10 kids from my class. We went to Halloween 5: The Revenge of Michael Myers and numerous haunted houses that year. Both things are completely out of character for me. I detest horror films and being scared in general so haunted houses are out too. There was something about the camaraderie in that group of people though that gave me the strength to participate and yes, to even enjoy having the shit scared out of me.
