Happy Halloween!

by Hallie @ Moxie Wife on October 31, 2011

In the words of my husband:

“…this Halloween, my family and I are going to watch It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown, just like we do every year. I’ll construct my annual life-size Jack-o-Lantern Man and prop him up on my front porch. The kids will transform into Indiana Joneses or fairy princesses. We will find a fun, safe neighborhood (there are still plenty to be found) and endure the chill of the late October dusk and all the terrors of the night in search of candy — as if we were doing something dangerous. We’ll jump at shadows and at the canned witch’s laughter coming from the speakers hidden in a neighbor’s azalea bush. We’ll enjoy this little bit of controlled fear and let it work its strange magic.

And when we go to Mass for All Saints’ Day the morning after, I’ll thank God for all the gifts He gives us — including a healthy sense of fear.”

I hope you have an equally happy All Hallow’s Eve, however your family may celebrate it!





P.S. I’m sharing a few of my thoughts on Fall Wardrobe Essentials over at Life as Mom today! Thank you so much for having me, Jessica! You’re a peach!

Happy halloween to you too! We don’t do the trick or treating thing ,but are hosting an “All Hallow’s Eve/All Saints Day Party.” I agree though, a healthy sense of fear seems to be lost by many in today’s world.

I love the fact that Halloween pokes fun at ‘devilishness’. It puts us in charge of him, just where we should be :) Have a fabulous evening!
