I think I finally figured out why I love Halloween………

I don’t have to cook…..there is no Thanksgiving madness in the kitchen, making sure the crescent rolls are done and the special mashed potatoes are cooked to perfection.

There is no Christmas dinner, no Easter brunch, no Fourth of July picnic…….just Halloween……..

I usually don’t cook anything elaborate on Halloween; because I know there will be doorbell interruptions….at least there were, years ago.  Now, no one trick or treats in my neighborhood.  I still don’t make a big dinner, it is my one NO COOKING holiday.  Should I choose to make a delicious pumpkin dessert, that is my prerogative…as Bobby Brown so aptly sang.  I don’t have to make one because it is expected; I can make one because it is my choice.

So, besides my love of all things magickal and “pumpkiny,” Halloween has the added bonus of a day of enjoyment……sans the K-P duty.

Just enjoyment, not pot scrubbing, dishwashing, stuffing making, hard boiled egg dying, just TRICKS AND TREATS…..even for me…….

Yes, scarecrows, witches, caramel apples, ghosts……..and no presents to wrap, no chestnuts to roast, and safety for all turkeys……..Halloween is my dream holiday……..

Coming soon………………..
