In my 21.8 years (give or take), I’ve never carved a pumpkin. Most of that is due to the fact that I never celebrated Halloween in any form until college. Even then, the last three years I haven’t done much as far as festivities go.

But last night, Halloween night, I carved my first pumpkin. I searched for so long to find a pumpkin (last-minute), and found a perfect one in addition to the one my roommates let me have. In addition to carving a pumpkin, I bought pre-cut sugar cookies in pumpkin form and decorated them with black icing. The icing was too runny and hard to control, so thank god I don’t have pictures of how bad they looked.
Overall, my night was wonderful. I got to spend a great holiday with my Love; listening to spooky music, watching a scary movie (The House on Haunted Hill), and doing traditional Halloween tasks. Jay and I appeased the spirit of Halloween, little Sam, and got our pumpkins out before Midnight. We also handed out candy to the very few trick-or-treaters who came to the door. Whether you spent it working, hiding at home with the lights off, or enjoying the holiday, I hope your Halloween was everything you wanted it to be. And now that it’s November, I wish you a very merry Christmas season! Time to put out the garlands and trees and stockings!
