i love you halloween. it's not just because you're the best holiday ever created, and it's not for all of the sugary goodness that you celebrate. it's because you're a wonderful way to recapture the essence of make believe, a night when i can be anything and it's okay. i love you for the quirky movies made in your honor, i love you for the freedom you allow one to howl at the moon. so many scents and edible pleasures surround your passing, and for this i am grateful. i just needed you to know, in case you don't hear it enough.
