Halloween has always been my absolute favorite holiday, ALWAYS. Ask my parents, ask my college friends, it’s Halloween. Not just when I was a goth in high school, either. When I was a kid . . . when I was in Social Work school . . . now that I’m a mother . . . always.
I remember once being the butt-end of a horse costume. I was a ghost, a mummy, and witches galore. One year when my sister was a teen and I was a grade-schooler, my mom made us coordinating costumes: I was a stop sign and my sister was a “curves ahead” sign, ha ha. Wish I had pics of those!! At my Halloween costume parties in college, someone invariably thought it was hilarious to come as a priest. I swear, every year there was at least one man of the cloth at this atheist’s house!
