Hey, so lots of folks know Denise and I are practicing witches ( or are wiccan , of you prefer). We love this time of year, and one of our favorite holidays is coming up. Samhain is on October 31, and is the witches new year. It is also believed that the veil that separates the living and the dead is at its thinnest. What fun!
We always take our vacation at that time of year, as we get to celebrate and really enjoy the season. Also a fun time to drive down to the valley and see the pumpkin people. Denise absolutely looses her mind and you almost pee your pants laughing at.... er, with her.
I've always loved Halloween as a kid, and I love any reason to dress up. I miss the dress up day at work, which makes sort of sad. Sort of. I prefer the classic costumes. You know, Viking, Devil, Vampire and Zombie. Denise likes to dress up like a Turkish lady, whatever that is.
To clarify, I was in fifth grade and wanted to be nothing other than a Turkish lady, and woe to those who looked at me and said "What a cute little gypsy". I was a TURKISH LADY!
And for those who don't know, the Pumpkin People are simply the BEST THING EVER!!!! A whole town that sets up scenes of pumpkin 'scarecrows' in selected themes. It is my favourite part of the whole year!!!
