Pin It I awoke this morning feeling a distinct chill in the air of my bedroom. I’d left the window open the night before in order to capitalize on the coolness of the evening, and to give the AC system a break.
It was so cold this morning I had trouble getting out of bed. Climbing into a warm shower was like a blessing from heaven itself.
When I was ready to leave, I emerged from my home, and the bite of the morning air greeted my nostrils with more intensity than it had while I’d been inside. I fully expected to see frost covering the long blades of grass of the front yard, like carpeting shards of broken glass. It made me think reminiscently of Halloween, and felt that I should have seen decorations festooning the neighborhood and people emerging from their homes shrouded in costume.
It was at this moment that I was reminded just how much I love Halloween. It is, I would have to say, one of my absolute favorite holidays.
That, and National Corn-Fritter Week.
