Halloween humbug

When did I start hating Halloween? It wasn't that many years ago that I used to get dressed up for office parties, and always used to give out candy (the good stuff - Almond Joy, Hershey's Miniatures). We would go to the riverboat casinos in costume, and I even let Kat cover my face in green makeup, dress me at the Wicked Witch, and go out to dinner to "scare the normals." We used to make fun of our uber-christian neighbors, who wouldn't let their kids go trick-or-treating because they thought Halloween was a Satanic ritual.

Now I bolt my door, turn off all the lights, and watch TV in a darkened bedroom. This year, we're going to the symphony, in large part to avoid being at home and skirt the whole trick-or-treat issue. They're having some sort of Halloween hijinks in the office, and all I think is "How immature. Don't these people have anything better to do?"
