End of Another Season...
Another Halloween Season has wrapped up.
You may wonder what a Halloween Addict does on November 1st?
Well I'll tell ya...
First I take an early morning stroll. This morning was a bit foggy and cool which helped with the mood of the day.
As I stroll the streets, enjoying the Halloween decorations that have yet to be taken down, I look for that one signal that Halloween's over.
The empty candy wrapper.
I've made it a bit of a ritual to take a photo of said wrapper. This year I actually found an empty "goody bag." You can see it in the photo there. A classy black and white bag with a skull and crossbones on it. the top was still tied and the side ripped open so there must have been some good stuff inside. Not only could the trick-or-treater not wait to get the bag home, but they couldn't even be bothered to untie it.
Good stuff, indeed.
I'll still manage to get a couple days of Halloween fun in this week though.
One of the pros and cons of running Halloween Addict is that I get to immerse myself in Halloween year-'round but don't get to take a breath through the month of October.
Right now I'm watching the two-part American Horror Story Halloween episode while eating the last of my pumpkin chocolate cupcakes. Homemade.
Yep, that's how I roll.
I also have half a bag of candy corn left.
A second bag.
That was a mistake.
I shouldn't have gone for two this year.
There are a ton of prime-real-estate posts that didn't make it on the site in October. As I'll be keeping Halloween alive 3-6-5, I'll just continue to post them as I always do.
I've got a lot of new readers and followers this year, so stick around through the holidays as there are gift guides galore coming in addition to a 2011 Season Wrap-Up with a post of my Favorites of the Year and as always 'regular' posts about the awesome Halloween stuff that's out there.
See you 'round the jack o' lantern...
