I can't believe it's almost Halloween. I love Halloween. It's my second favorite holiday after Ground Hog Day [yep, I'm kind of weird]. I don't get trick or treaters in my neighborhood. Two miles down the road my dad gets hundreds of them. I always liked seeing what the kids are dressed up like, especially the little ones. They say Halloween is the second biggest holiday in terms of money spent, now only trailing Christmas.
To that end, a local attraction down the road called Old Tucson, gets right in the spirit. They have an event called Nightfall, where the movie-themed park turns into a ghost town at night. I have never gone and intended to go this time. Alas, since i just got out of the hospital and have little stamina, that now seems unlikely. Bummer. So, I guess I'll go help dad hand out candy. Maybe I'll put a costume on, probably not. My ten-year-old self would be disgusted with me.
By the way, Tales From Dry Gulch has some stories just right for Halloween. Feel free to order a box and hand them out instead of candy.
