So it's October, and every body knows it. We're fairly cool with saying it's the month of thrills and chills and princess costumes, and yet... All Halloween all the time? Could it be a tad... dare we say. premature? No one wants to be a party pooper, (and no one wants to tell a 3 year old in a tiara no), so we try to have it both ways. That pumpkin patch? It's for the harvest. The costume exchange? Same thing. And the haunted house, too. (Just go with it.)
We can look at the moon, too, because it's an astronomical phenomenon and a cultural tradition, and not at all associated with seasonal spooks. And who doesn't go to the movies, year round, regardless of the season? Sometimes movies are just scary. And we go to the zoo, and ride trains, and it's all just every day, so-what-if-there's-a-pumpkin kind of stuff.
In fact, there are several honest-to-goodness, could happen any time but just happens to be now, "oh, is it October? Who knew?" events this weekend, some really good ones too. Some are even about the harvest....or are they?
Run, don't walk, to see what spookalicious treats we have in store for you for this weekend...
