August 26, 2010 — If the weather is cool enough, then Halloween can start for me as early as September 1st. So does Autumn. I also pretty much always use those terms interchangeably. I really should come with an owner’s manual, I guess.
I really dig this time of year. Like more than I can account for. It’s one of two reasons I moved to New England from the Mid-Atlantic, with the other being guaranteed white Christmases (I would also celebrate Christmas for two months if Thanksgiving didn’t get in the way). There’s just something grand about seeing everybody else in the country suddenly and overtly interested in the macabre, giving me a rare feeling of kinship with my fellow man (It’s not you, it’s me).
