Happy Halloween


Dave Mora smiles during Halloween

October 31st use to be one of my favorite days growing up. Although I still enjoy Halloween somehow it no longer fills the excitement it once did. Now, that I am a parent I realized how fortunate I was growing up. I am not sure if the atmosphere was different in the 80?s or I just had an awesome neighborhood. Every Halloween, Christmas, Easter, or any other themed holiday everyone house was decorated accordingly.

As I got older I slowly moved away from running door to door asking strangers for candy to just dressing up and heading to Halloween parties.

Somewhere along the way I had forgotten that little joy I use to get. It?s a kid joy that is hard to explain but I am sure you know what I am talking about. Heck you can even call it your ?Epic Joy?.

For me, my joy was simple. A plastic bag full of candy that got heavier with every door I visited. But, my ?Epic Joy? came when a house had the candy I loved and gave them out in handfuls.

I hate the one candy per kid rule!

It was not until last year that I remember that childhood joy. Seeing my daughter Ascii in her Tigger costume trick-o-treating with a smile that went from ear to ear.

Tigger Costume Ascii Mora wore on Halloween 2008

So, I am wishing everyone an awesome Halloween. Either being with you kids or being that party animal that gets to party once year.
