Dear Creative Chicks,
It’s time to tune up your broom because Halloween is near.
They don’t use the term, All Hallow’s Eve much anymore but as a kid, I was confused as to what it meant exactly. I thought the word “Hallow” was a fancy way of saying “holler” as if you were supposed to save up all your hollering for one night. Naturally this didn’t make sense because I got hollered at year round for stuff that had nothing to do with Halloween.
However, being the maligned, yet dutiful child that I was, when All Hallows Eve rolled around, I hollered “Eve” as loud as I could thinking that the hollering was what got you the candy. My mistake.
Hollering "Eve" instead of "Trick or Treat" at the top of my lungs in a crowd of kids dressed like pirates and goblins earned me a punch in the stomach by Delbert Pinon which was explanation enough that I may have taken the whole Hallow’s Eve a bit too literal.
I guess the trick was on me.
Don’t forget to buy candy and be sure to hoard some of your favorite. You will never have a more perfect excuse.
