Sometimes you just have to put everything aside revel in the joy and laughter of each other’s creativity and silliness. Sometimes, you just have to play. I find Halloween to be the perfect time to do this. It’s a celebration of each other, of levity, and of the slowing down of life (where we can actually concentrate on pulling off a fantastic party).
We can so easily become bogged down beneath the burdens of responsibility and obstacles etc. ad infinitum that we forget how to crawl out from underneath and breathe. So setting aside an official time to do so, say, for example, Halloween, is actually an important life task, see? Now I don’t really care about the history or the meaning or the evolution of the “holiday” of Halloween, I’m only interested in some set moment in time to clamber out from under the weight of the world and giggle. Or even guffaw. Because we all deserve a guffaw.
