Hello, Ween

I love Halloween. I love that it doesn’t have the cutesy feeling of other holidays. I love dressing up. I love that nobody talks about “the true spirit of Halloween.” I love that you don’t have to give and receive presents and cards, which eliminates a lot of stress. You don’t have to feel guilty if you just have a good time, or even if you do nothing at all. It’s just a holiday that’s there to be enjoyed. So go forth and find the Great Pumpkin!

I agree. It's just a silly good time. You dress up and eat lots of candy. I used to make a "yard of terror" and make people with old shirts and newspaper. I'd have them be "stuffed" into the ground. one time i had an old headstone (why? no idea) and made arms coming out of the ground in front of it. awesome.
