Still enjoying the cold rainy weather in the Great Northwest or as more appropriate these days the Great North Wet. I am itching for the holidays to get here. I don’t really celebrate Halloween save giving out goodies to the children. So I am waiting anxiously for November to get here. We travel every other year for Thanksgiving and this year is our year to stay home. I am eager to get plans under way! It’s early I know but it will be here before you know. In a little under a month will be the HO HO HO Readathon I am so excited. I’ve already started reading holiday books. It’s interesting that most of them come out around this time and not closer to Christmas.

Question of the Week – What are your plans for Halloween? I am just planning on handing out Taki’s which seem to be a favorite among my nephews and nieces.

    I have never been a big fan of halloween. The people make my dogs go NUTS so we don’t even hand out candy. But, Thanksgiving and Christmas? I can’t wait!!!

      I’m excited for Thanksgiving and Christmas too. I could just skip over Halloween.

    I don’t really have Halloween plans. I’m volunteering the Saturday before for a couple hours at an LGBT+ Youth Summit. I might go to a friends and watch some spooky films for a bit, but we’ll see what happens! :)

      Sounds more eventful than my holiday.

    We’re expecting some rain ahead of us here as well and I like it as long as I’m not out in it. Tucked inside while it’s raining suits me nicely!

    Halloween’s not traditionally celebrated at all in Australia but it’s becoming more popular and you find a few kids out trick or treating.

      That’s interesting that Halloween is not celebrated there.

    I am hosting Thanksgiving, although it could be held off if my daughter goes into labor :) Hope your week is delightful!

    I’m looking forward to Halloween; I’ll be handing out candy and enjoying the children’s costumes. Chocolate seems to be the treat of choice around here. I had to google “Taki” because I’ve never heard of them. Now I want to try one!

    Have fun with the HoHoHoRAT; I’ll be doing it too. :-)

      I’ve never tried them, I just know that the kids love them.

    Oh you are readying for the holidays with books. :) Cool! Hope you have a great week!

    • Jessica October 20, 2016, 9:02 pm

      Yes. I have a lot more coming too.
