The Friday Five

Five things I don't like about Halloween.

1. Other than The Monster Mash by the Beach Boys and possibly Giant Purple People Eater by Sheb Wooley there are no Halloween Carols. Are there other Halloween songs?  On the other hand, radio stations would probably belt out the Halloween tunes starting on Labor Day so I'd be sick of hearing them by the time Halloween rolled around.

2,Why does Christmas have to cut Halloween short? Target already has Christmas cards and lights opposite the Halloween costumes.

3. Easter is starting to hone in on the action, too. Cadbury has a Screme egg for Halloween! Instead of the white and yellow fondant center used for Easter, the Screme egg center is white and green fondant. Hershey is the U.S. distributor for Cadbury U.K. C'mon, Hershey! Are you afraid your Halloween candy sales will be down?

4. I saw a package of brightly colored Easter eggs with Halloween stickers. Package verbiage suggested having a monster egg hunt. Who brings the eggs? The Easter Bunny dressed in a costume? The Halloween Hare? Is the Hare rabid? Who lays the eggs? The Halloween Hen? Is she the chicken who runs around with her head cut off? Is she rabid? My head hurts. I think I need an aspirin.

5. I saw a purple Halloween Jack O'Lantern  bucket. Suppose that goes hand in hand with sparkly vampires.

Is there anything you don't like about Halloween?


  1. Ha!! I'm laughing my buns off over here--yes, I'll send you some aspirin. :) Ha!

  2. I don't like the whole thing! I need a catch phrase (along the lines of 'Bah humbug'!)
