Halloween has never been my favorite holiday. Too much pressure to come up with the best costume. Too many decisions on how much candy to buy.
This year I've decided not to partake. As in, the porch light is staying off and the doorbell will be ignored. Don't worry. We live in an older neighborhood and most of the neighbors are seniors. We have never gotten more than a handful of trick-or-treaters anyway - some years none at all.
And since candy isn't in the budget - and would end up mostly being eaten by me - I didn't buy any.
