I knew this day would come.
I was prepared for it when during my research I discovered that Italians do not celebrate Halloween. Normally my October is filled with Halloween parties, Pumpkin Patches, costumes, witches, skeletons, etc. This year? Not. No Target isles full of costumes, no corn maze signs off the highway, no ads on the radio for haunted houses.
I totally spaced that Halloween was coming until last week when a package arrived from my grandma, filled with Halloween goodies.
It makes me sad a bit that I forgot. Now I've got to drum up some Halloweeny-ness so I don't end up in a full-on ugly-cry temper tantrum on the 31st.
