Boo!

BJ Bounds

Happy Halloween everybody!  It’s that time of year again!  Time for lots of candy and fun decorations!  This is another one of those kid holidays that adults still love to participate in.

I’ve never been one for dressing up at work, although I love to see other people’s costumes, but I love costume parties.  I don’t have one planned for this year but if I did, I’d be going as a disco chic—go-go boots and everything!  Well, like I said, that was my plan—I never actually bought it.

Halloween is a booming business here in the states.  Even though the number of costume shops has declined 5% in recent years (possibly due to online shopping), candy consumption has gone up about the same percentage.  Maybe it’s because they keep coming out with new chocolates and really realistic-looking candy body parts!  Who here hasn’t chewed on an eyeball?

But I digress.  This year we’re celebrating on a Monday—maybe a little fun at the end of the week’s first work day is a good thing.  I’ve heard of a lot of neighborhoods doing parking lot Trunk-or-Treats this year instead of having the kids go door to door.  I think it’s an interesting idea and look forward to seeing it in action.

What about you?  What are your plans for this spooky day?
