Whether today celebrates the new year or you just want free candy, remember to be safe & have fun.
Halloween is a funny sort of day. We dress up in masks (or in some cases, next to nothing) & pretend to be someone else, while acting the most like ourselves. It’s odd that we feel that the costume protects us from all the things that freak us out during the rest of the year.
Maybe we should adopt the Halloween philosophy every day. Let loose & have fun & be goofy. If you need cat ears to do it, wear the cat ears. I can appreciate the irony of the most uptight person saying mellow out. However, I think we all need to be truer to ourselves & stop hiding our truest selves until we wear cat ears. Let’s leave the masks for the trick or treaters.
To my pagan friends, Happy Samhain & have a blessed day. To the rest of us, I’m gonna quote a great composer:
“Tender lumplings everywhere, Life’s no fun without a good scare!”
