I'm not really a fan of Halloween. Never really have been. This is for a great variety of reasons that range from silly to serious. I've written about some of my more serious reasons before, and you can check them out here if you'd like.
But for now, I will share my current thought on Halloween. I think the decorations are creepy and icky! Seriously... I spend a lot of time trying to make my home a lovely, comfortable place to live. Why on earth would someone want to decorate it with spiders, skulls, blood, and deadness? Gross!
My next door neighbors have a few Halloween decorations up. Thankfully nothing too terrible. But I do have this guy peeking in my kitchen window at me.
What's worse than having a peeping Tom? a DEAD peeping Tom! I think I'm actually going to look forward to when Christmas decorations go up. Christmas decorations may be tacky, but at least they're not dead and gross.
Ps. Funny story... I was curious about where the term "Peeping Tom" came from. According to Wikipedia... he died for his peeping. So it kind of makes sense now to have a dead peeping Tom.
That doesn't mean I want him around.
