Dressing Up Your Windows for Halloween

Would you like to hear something really frightening?

I just had an argument with my 9 year old daughter that ended with, “NO! We are not watching the news!  We are watching Pinkie Dinkie Doo!!!!”

“But Mommy” she pleads, “It’s not fair. You guys can watch Pinkie Dinkie Doo, anytime.  The news only comes on once and THAT’S IT FOREVER. IT’LL NEVER, EVER, COME ON AGAIN!”

“Shelbi, stop being so dramatic” I say. “It comes on again at 7:00 am, Noon, 5:00, 5:30, 6:00 . . .”

“No it doesn’t. It won’t be exactly the same. Different news will have happened. I CAN NEVER WATCH MY SHOWS!”

It wasn’t that long ago that she was pleading her case to watch Barney and Friends. Now she’s begging to watch the news?

I don’t think this is normal.

I hope it’s not normal.

What’s worse? A 9 year old who wants to watch the news, or a 35 year old who’d rather watch cartoons? Feel free not to answer that.

There are lots of ways to get fright in your life for Halloween.

Severed limbs. Dangling Skeletons. Cackling Witches.

Very, very, scary.

But, on Halloween, nothing is more frightening than the silent things that go on behind closed doors, or windows.

“What are those crazy Woo’s doing down the street?” One might say. 

“I don’t know.  Let’s look through their window.”

What the *#@%!!! Is that a giant Cat? Or maybe its a Bird? Those people are strange.

But just as they start to walk away, they notice something sinister in another upstairs window. So they stop, and look . . . . . . . a little bit closer.

 Is that a man in the window, they think.  And there. . . . is that someone floating. . . . . or hanging? OH MY!

The Woo’s may appear like a  normal family to some, but who knows what goes on behind closed doors.
