November 1st has come. October's Over. Blogging everyday during the month of October has become part are my Halloween festivities.
Today I am posting (yet again) mopehead's "October's Over". I'm not really sold on the track so if you like it let me know and if you don't - well...keep your comments to yourself. Most importantly it is a commentary on how I feel the day after Halloween. It usually takes me a few weeks to get over the loss felt when the Halloween season is over. Although I love that Halloween is the gateway to other holidays, it always seems to come and go so quickly. October 31st is also when my Father passed away so it now has multiple meanings for me.
As I tell people when they question me about Halloween being my favorite holiday...
Halloween is the greatest play day of the year. As an adult you can get away with being anything or anyone (well...almost). And unlike other holidays if you choose not to participate you aren't shunned. Seriously folks...if I told people I just didn't feel like participating in Thanksgiving or Christmas I would be excommunicated. If you don't participate in Valentine's Day you don't have love or know love. 4th of July you are not a patriot. Halloween? Eh...no biggie.
Of course that seems just plain wrong to me, but I like the no pressure nature of my favorite holiday.
