Halloween is almost upon us! It’s nearly time for all the little ghosts, ghouls and Goblins to come out to wreak havoc across the land! Are you prepared?!
Here’s a fun fact for you, Halloween is actually one of the only Holidays that I enjoy. Despite the fact, that I usually spend it alone, It is still my favorite Holiday. The reason for this? Well, there are a variety of reasons for this! First of all, It’s not really a family oriented Holiday like Easter, Christmas or Thanksgiving. Since, it doesn’t focus on family, I don’t find myself thinking about all people closest to me that I have lost. That’s always a good thing!
Another reason that I enjoy Halloween is the fact that it becomes much easier on October 31st, to find a good Zombie movie on Television! This year, with the start of The Walking Dead TV Series will be even better, because Honestly, the only thing better than a movie about Zombies, is a series about Zombies! Plus Halloween holiday episodes of Television shows are usually pretty snazzy too!
If those weren’t good enough reasons to love Halloween, I have just two words to say to you. Candy Corn. Yep, Candy corn, one of the best holiday candies ever created. Sure, it’s practically just pure sugar. Sure, it will rot your teeth out. Sure, it will probably put many people into a sugar coma. All that maybe true, but damn, is it worth it!
I remember, when I was a little tyke, I used to, like most children, attach the little bits of candy corn to my teeth, and pretend they were Fangs. I would then run around making silly little vampire statements like “I vant to suck yer blood!” in a cheesy Romanian accent. However, I believe the Phrase I prefered at the time was a quote from the movie Fright Night, “Your dinners in the oven!”, yea it was a stupid quote for a lame movie, but at the time I friggin loved it!
Anyway, I would probably run around for 15 mins or so, with my candy corn fangs. Honestly? I am surprised that my teeth being exposed that long to Candy Corn didn’t cause them to fall out! Hell, I suppose I am severely lucky that I still have teeth to call my own.
