Halloween has always been my favorite time of year. Some people are Christmas people, and some, like me, consider Halloween their Christmas. See, the wonder and imagination that’s associated with Halloween has always been a powerful draw. It’s the one night a year where you can dress up as something completely different, insane or wild and no one makes fun of you. For Halloween, its like your subconscious rules, especially as children. Hopes for the future and their real selves come out in what they chose, whether it’s a princess costumes, or a cowboy… children hold so much hope, so much promise, and so much imagination, they revel in a night to bring out their darker passions and selves.
Halloween for me has always been about choice, what to pretend to be, what to eat, what houses to visit. In the past I have been everything from a princess (gag) to comic book characters, to most recently book characters. While I don’t trick or treat anymore, I do still dress up to give out candy. Halloween still holds the same magic for me, and while I might not go candy collecting, seeing the little ones who are starting on the road for the first time is awesome. Parents and kids keep the imagination alive, and without it, writers, artists and musicians wouldn’t exist.
Sounds like a book right? IT WAS! Which is another reason I love it. The Movie starred Faruiza Balk, (Nancy from the Craft) when she was little, and done right after she starred in Return to Oz. If you can find it, get it and show your kids, its one of the cutest movies ever, AND Timy Curry (from Rocky Horror fame) is in it as the grand High wizard, and sings a song!
