So, when do you first realize that you still loved Halloween? I imagine that if we were all sitting around in my living room talking about Halloweens past, eventually we would come to a point when Halloween stopped being fun for us. Maybe you outgrew trick 'r treating or just couldn't find anyone who wanted to do anything. Maybe mediocre Halloween parties just began to bore you. Maybe you reached a point when you realized that Halloween deserved to be celebrated from August 1st through November 7th and not just for the last few hours of October 31st. Folks, if you're here reading this then I think it's a pretty good guess that you're an adult who still loves Halloween. You share a story with us about a time when you still realized that you loved Halloween and I'll share one with you. Leave you comment and read my little yarn after the break...
Re-Halloween and me and my buddy Andrew are also working on Halloween in May. Expect to be celebrating it sometime in the next few years! It's gonna be huge!
Here's your old pal Barbecue17 the next year on Halloween as Ash from Army of Darkness. I'm not that slim anymore and I generaly have less blood on me.
By this time I'd already been to multiple haunted houses, a 1/2 dozen corn mazes, I'd drank enough Mountain Dew Pitch Black to fill a bathtub, eaten my weight in fun-size candy bars, and watched enough horror movies to fill at least 1/2 a season of Monster-Vision with Joe Bob Briggs. From then I've continued to find ways to celebrate and have some ghoulish fun every year. Now that I have a little one, Halloween is probably even more fun than it's ever been! She's nuts about it too!
So, when did you realize that you loved Halloween and what did you do about it? Share a story about your worst Halloween with us, or perhaps a tale of the year when you reclaimed Halloween?
Remember that if you comment you will be entered into a contest for an amazing surprise prize package with cool stuff from the Harvey Mercheum, Cool & Collected, and this girl who keeps calling me and wanting me to send people old VHS tapes she found in an abandoned cabin!
