OCTOBER!!!

This is my favorite time of the year! Not for the leaves, not the chill in the air, just one thing... HALLOWEEN! I love Halloween more than any holiday ever. I become a little kid this time of year, just waiting for that magical night where witches, zombies and vampires come to life.

The fact is Halloween is simple. There's no confusing mash-up of Pagan/Christian ideologies, no social obligations forcing anyone to make massive trips across the earth to see people they wouldn't talk to the rest of the year. It can be as cheap or as expensive as anyone wants. A white sheet with some holes in it can be just as good a costume as a $600 dress. I also love how grown up or little kid Halloween can be. Dress up as Mario or paint a doll and make it look like a zombie is bursting from your chest, both work. Tell me a holiday that's as versatile as that?
Yah I thought so.

So with midterms crawling all over me, here's a few of my favorite Halloween scenes. Don't worry, like everything else on Mormongeeks, they're family appropriate.
