October has two of my very favorite holidays. The first being my birthday. I will be 33 next week. I know that my friends have plans for that day but I don't know what they are. I like to be surprised so I told them not to tell me what the plans are.
But that holiday isn't the one that I am referring to today. What I want to talk about is Halloween.
I grew up in a relatively small town of about 15,000 people. We would always have the halloween party at school, dress up and tromp our way through the school showing off our fantastic costumes. Then we would go next door to the nursing home in a noisy colorful display for the residents. (Sidenote: Why do almost all nursing homes smell like urine?)
Then the ghosts, goblins, super-heroes and princesses would take over the town running from house to house to get our candy treats.
I still love this holiday and am lucky that I work for a company that allows us to dress up for that day.
Last year I came as this:
Mimi Bobeck from The Drew Carey Show
This year I am dressing up as:
Carrie (horror movie)
Do you enjoy the halloween celebrations? Are you dressing up? What are you dressing up as?
If you could dress up as anything, what would it be?
