The older I get, the more I like Halloween and the month of October. Backwards? Probably, but let’s talk about it for a second. As a child, Halloween lasts for one day to one week maximum depending on which teacher you have that year. The other three weeks of the month, are…normal, minus a few “spooky” decorations slowly making their way around the classroom and school grounds. When you get older, though, Halloween becomes the entire month thanks to movie marathons, pumpkin patches, Oktoberfest, and so much more. This is what brings me to my newfound love of the month that hosts the holiday that I still don’t understand if I’m being completely real.
