I’m taking a risk here, of sending what few readers I have running out the virtual door, but for the sake of being honest I will say it anyway.
I hate Halloween.
After 3 years of living in Canada, I still haven’t found a way to make myself comfortable with this one. For the life of me, I can not understand why anyone who is not a dentist or a candy retailer will enjoy having the kids running around the neighborhood with pillowcases full of the worst kinds of sweets.
And it makes me feel misplaced and lonely. And it makes me miss the holidays I do know. And anything that reminds me of Israel in a positive way, should be banned…
For three years I was afraid that if I say these things out loud, I would be denied entry into North America, or at least have my children taken away by social services on account of not being allowed to trick or treat. But now I know I’m not alone – so maybe there are even a few more misfits our there who find Halloween strange? lets form an alliance and share some thoughts about alternative way to celebrate!
In the meantime, as we do like the pumpkin patch, and some of us go to preschool and are blissfully unaware of mommy’s inner conflicts, lets enjoy some photos.
Happy Halloween everyone, however you may chose to celebrate it!
