I don't know about you, but October is my favorite time of year. The weather is cooler, the leaves are turning (and falling) and some of our fondest memories from childhood flood back like a soothing cup of hot chocolate. Of course that isn't the only reason I love October. Need I state the obvious? It's because of HALLOWEEN! Yes, I LOVE Halloween! It's probably my favorite holiday ever! And it's not because of the candy...although if you want to give me a bag of Almond Joys I won't complain. I love Halloween because it's the one time of the year that you can dress up and scare children and not get arrested (mostly). I admit I wasn't that big into Halloween until I had my own children but, as they got older stopped doing the trick-or-treating I decided to keep them excited about the day by really getting into the spirit of it all. On Halloween day we'd turn our yard or garage into a haunted house/cemetery. One year my son and his friends even dressed as zombies and roamed to graveyard in a live-action decoration.. Another reason I love October is because I love watching scary movies with my daughter. Not the blood and gore ones, but the scary ones that keep you on the edge of your seat. It's why I write paranormal romances.
What are your favorite things about October?
