Halloween was always my least favorite holiday as a kid. I loved the free candy but I hated- HATED- getting scared. I remember one Halloween just being curled up in a ball under a counter at the church because I was so scared. Yeah, I was a little scarred.

My wife on the other hand is a massive nut for Halloween. It’s her favorite holiday besides Christmas. It’s kind of cute.

Becoming a parent has softened my stance towards Halloween. Last night, Little Brawl declared that he was going to be Raphael for Halloween (even though his favorite Ninja Turtle is Mikey). I just melted my heart.

So let’s hear it- are you excited or not? And have you been scarred by Halloweens past? Or just do the normal open thread thing. I don’t care. :-)
