Halloween is arguably the best 'kid holiday' in the calendar year. Not only do you end the evening taking careful stock of a sackful of FREE candy, but this glorious bounty was obtained by running around in the dark with your friends, disguised in a clever costume. I ask you, what could be better? Add to that the inevitable pre-holiday preparations of donuts and cider, hay rides, pumpkin carving, and apple bobbing (do kids still bob for apples?) and the only other holiday that even comes close to this orgy of fun and imagination is Christmas (and I'm not sure you can legally use the word 'orgy' in conjunction with the celebration of the birth of Jesus). Happy Halloween...may your sacks be full!
