This week’s post concerns my Favorite Holiday (and a recipe).
My favorite holiday is Halloween. I don’t have any great recipes to go along with Halloween because I’m not much of a cook. Why Halloween? I hate being scared. I hate being startled. That said, I do like the inventiveness of the holiday. I love seeing how others decorate their space for the holiday. I like seeing the different displays and the interpretations. My tot loves to decorate our house for the event and even created his own sculpture to use outside. It’s pretty cool. I don’t have pictures of his work because he gets protective of it.
But why Halloween? I remember being a kid and watching Garfield’s Halloween Special. I can’t find the imdb link, but here’s the link to it on google, in case you’ve never seen it: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Garfield%27s_Halloween_Adventure
This show scared the living hell out of me, but I still wanted to watch it. There’s a creepy old guy who tells a ghost story, ghosty pirates that show up and it gets scary. Now, being five when the show came on TV, I was scared. But I loved it – because I could turn it off. You can’t turn off a haunted house.
The other reason Halloween is my favorite holiday is something that Garfield says… “Halloween’s my kind of a holiday. It’s not like those other stupid holidays. I don’t get pine needles in my paws, there’s no dumb bunnies, no fireworks, no relatives, just candy. Boom, you go out and get candy. It’s as simple as that. Simple, that’s me.”
Maybe that sounds greedy. Maybe it sounds miserly. I’m not wild about crowds and I don’t like being hugged. I like fireworks, but it scares the hell out of my dogs. Plus, I like candy.
What about you? What’s your favorite holiday and do YOU have a recipe? I can’t cook, but maybe I can make your recipe. It’s possible. 🙂
