I write this post several days and relatively healthy after it is dated. I’m a Halloween fan. I grew up loving horror of all kinds with the films as a big part of my youth. And later, I came to see Halloween as a wonderful metaphor for life, society and culture. It means a great deal to me. And so it is with a heavy heart that I say I missed it’s celebration this year.
Due to my own unwanted reenactment of several scenes from Evil Dead II, I was swimming some really rough waters early Wednesday morning and throughout the day, feeling Influenza-Horrible. So, not only did I miss the dressing up and the festivities of my day-job at The Search Agency but I also did not have a chance to visit my local comic store, pick up my books and write my Wednesday Knight’s Haul post – sadness. But the real pain was missing out on a great DWAP tradition of showing a classic horror film on the front of our duplex as we hand out candy to the local kids – this is a tradition that we are known in our neighborhood for and we have not missed a year in more than 6. Ho Hum. There is next year but please remember that in actuality, Every Day Is Halloween.
