This year it is hard to find my full Halloween spirit. Halloween is my favorite holiday, but I am just not feeling the spooky spirit as much this year as in years past. I know there are a lot of reasons that it is harder this year: pandemic, about to start a new job, water heater replacement suddenly, oh and did I mention a pandemic.
Yesterday my manager wandered over and told me that she saw someobe who was challenging my place as queen of Halloween at work because she was wearing a Halloween dress, with leggings and socks; I was wearing a pair of jeans and a goldenrod blazer. It made me think about how I have not been wearing a lot of my Halloween stuff this year. It seriously hadn’t occurred to me until she brought it up.
I am going to try to find my Halloween happy this week and next. I have a Halloween party on Saturday that I am pulling together a costume for which is getting me into the spirit a bit. I am also going to be pulling together looks for a couple of witchy meetups and Halloween shows, so I predict the spirit beginning to show itself soon.
I really hope so. I miss casually spooky me. 🖤👻💀🕷🦇🎃🔮
