The True Spirit of Halloween
So, tonight I'm not only prepared to lose all my candy in one visit, but the bowl I will use to set it out. Does this make me a better person? If that's what you want to call it. Am I righting the universe of all my childhood theft? Again, if you are going there I'm not going to stop you. Will I miss the bowl? Probably, but again, I've been "given" so many bowls in the past - am I really losing anything? And isn't the death of a bowl really the spirit of Halloween? I mean wouldn't you say my fellow celebrators of Dia de Muertos, or Day of The Dead, for my non-Spanish readers? (Yeah, I took some Spanish in middle school.) Don't know what that means? Hmmm...it's so sad to see when the original origins of holidays get lost. Pagans.
