I think Halloween is a great holiday. Sure a few cats get sacrificed in the process, but what about the value it adds to your neighborhood? There is no other day of the year where it’s okay for one neighbor to knock on the door of another and say, “Hi.” People meet each other, adore each other’s kids, learn to smile and wave the next time their paths cross, maybe even learn they share a lot in common and ought to do dinner sometime.
You have the opportunity to be a part of your neighborhood unlike any other day of the year. Grab a garbage bag, dress your kid in something funny, and get out there to shake a few hands.
