My Favorite Holiday!

Posted on Thursday, October 4, 2012 by shoshanalibrarian


i looove halloween!  well, ok, i love most occasions that require a costume, but halloween is extra special to me.  growing up, we didn't usually go buy costumes, we just made them out of what we had lying around the house.  i still love putting together a costume instead of buying one ready made (check out my hamburglar costume - one of my best ever and not from a box!).  my dad would always do our makeup (the worst part was taking it off after -  to this day i hate the smell of cold cream), then i'd be released into the dark, cold night with a big group of friends to collect as much candy as my little arms could hold.  when i got home, one of my favorite things to do was sort my candy into categories - is it a surprise i grew up to be a librarian?  

though these days i'm too old to trick-or-treat, i still love dressing up, being outside in the crisp fall air, seeing all the kids in their costumes, and giving out candy.  hint: if you come by my house, you get bonus candy for creativity!
