My love for Halloween has changed over the years, but October 31st is still my favorite day of the year.

When I was young I loved it for the reasons all kids do – dressing up like someone you’re not and candy.

As I got older Halloween became about dressing up as someone you’re not and heading out to a party or bar for the night.

When I first moved to NYC, Halloween became about dressing up as someone you’re not and going to the Greenwich Village Halloween parade.

The last five or so years, my love for Halloween has evolved into something else I guess. I still love the dressing up part of Halloween – even though I haven’t dressed up for a few years. I do miss that.

Now I just love watching people love Halloween too. I love adult’s creative costumes, kids in their cute little costumes, decorated houses, scary music, treats, and the fun and festive feeling. I guess I’m okay with being an observer rather than a participant, for now. I anticipate change in the future, since I am somewhat of a chameleon.

So I hope everyone had a great night last night and your belly’s weren’t too achy from all the candy today!
