I've never been a big fan of this holiday and really wanted to discourage it at our house because of all the ramifications associated with it. However, my husband felt otherwise and after pushing the issue for a few years (and getting no where, I might add), I gave up and got with the program.
In truth, I love the theatrics involved, the costumes and the general silliness. This year was no different. I just wish that just that just once one of them would go as a fairy princess instead of a zombie or a Death eater . . .
