Today is the day when young kids dress up as their favorite superhero, actor, or character. The day when people walk house-to-house to ask for treats (mainly candy). The day you see carved pumpkins sitting out on the porch. The day when everyone walks through the cold, chilly night together with friends and family. The day the whole neighborhood actually sees each other for once. Yes, today is Halloween; but, not the kind of Halloween you are thinking about. Today’s Halloween is a gloomy, dull one due to the rain that has darkened the day. I love rain, but I hate the gloominess of rainy days. I feel like I have nothing productive or nice to do except sleep or eat. I hope the rain goes away soon so that I can enjoy the rest of my night.
Today at the Academies of Loudoun, we talked about safety tips for Halloween in my Pharmacy Technology class. As we were discussing the lesson, I looked out the window and saw that it was still raining. Sadly, it seems like it is going to be a boring Halloween this year. I really hope it stops soon so that there can still be a Halloween parade and the event of seeing children run from house-to-house to get candy. I honestly do not even think I have enough candy to give out either so I might need to go to the store to get some more. I hope everyone has a good one. Happy Halloween!!
