I love Halloween. In fact, I’m rather sure “love” doesn’t even begin to explain the joy and excitement I feel starting somewhere in late August, that carries on into early November. No other holiday compares in my mind.
I love everything about it! I love when the stores start putting out their decorations, choosing a costume. I put more thought into what I’m going to be than I do what I’m going to buy for presents for Christmas.
That being said, towards the end of August I made the decision that this year I’m going to go all out for Halloween. It’s been a while since I’ve really been able to do much. This year will be amazing. So I bought a skeleton.
Let me state up front that my idea was not original. I got the idea from this blog http://www.oddthingsiveseen.com/2013/10/skull-in-family.html. I discovered it a while back, and realized that I, too, had a plastic skeleton shaped hole in my life.
So I bought one.
His name is Ichabod Cranium.
And I love him.
Here are just a few things that Ichabod has gotten up to since he arrived.
My boss loves him, and I’ve been given permission to decorate the hotel lobby how I see fit. I’m so excited about it! Now it begins. Tis the season of Halloween!
