Hello, and welcome to fall. Don’t pay attention to the bright red thermometer, because football season has started, MDA had their Labor Day shindig, and Starbucks has officially released their seasonal favorite, the Pumpkin Spice Latte. (Extra shot, light whip.) Fall is official, and that can only mean one thing: Halloween.
It’s like scary.
It’s during this time of year that I like to dust off my tinfoil hat and wax conspiracy theories about candy overlords and how they rule the time between Halloween and Easter. Sure, oil companies make the news, but it’s the candy guys that are pulling the strings. Sweet, chocolate-covered strings…
Halloween is big treat business. Buy your candy accordingly. These are our favorites:
For the record, the tinfoil hat is part of my costume.
Speaking of costumes, candy is dandy but nothing says Halloween like dressing up as your favorite character, or, ladies (if TV has taught me anything) a more promiscuous version of said favorite character.
Remember her from Ghostbusters? Me neither.
It’s all in good fun.
Of course, it’s the children that are the real heroes of Halloween. And monsters, Disney characters, recently-acquired Disney characters and Disney princesses. Disney does pretty well at Halloween (almost candy-esque!). Bottom line, the kids can be whatever they want, it’s Halloween.
Welcome to fall, people. And pets.
