I really love Halloween. Every year, I get the little note or email from my daughter’s Jewish daycare, reminding us not to dress our kids in costume, please don’t bring in cards or candy, please save the costumes for Purim . . . . WE’RE JEWS! Okay, I get it. I really do. I just love Halloween so much. I keep it out of the school, so maybe I go a bit overboard at home.
I’ve done Jack Skellington before. My daughter is quite the Nightmare Before Christmas Fan. Seriously, we know all the songs and listen to the soundtrack often. It helps make up for all the princess crap I have to deal with. Oy.
I love Lock, Shock, and Barrel. I realized only this year that Paul Reubens (Pee-Wee!) plays Lock. Awesome. I thought I’d transform some gourds in honor of Halloween Town’s resident trick-or-treaters.
I cut paper hair and everything.
