I have loved Halloween ever since I could remember. That holiday and the fall season have been my favorites since, well, ever. Another reason my wedding day is (drumroll)…Halloween.
Several years ago, my wife thought I was ok enough to get hitched to me. It turned out pretty good for her, but I did have a lot of things to work on. We got married on a beach in Hawaii, friends and family were there. The one thing I asked for was a Halloween wedding. No festive celebrating on the day – no makeup or costumes, except for the bride and groom costumes. (A white polyester on a fat guy on a Hawaiian beach is always gonna end up in tears – of sweat.)
She gave me that, and I optioned all of the anniversaries. I can do whatever Halloween stuff I want on anniversaries. Do you know how many Halloween-iversaries we have celebrated? None. Not a one. Why? Because I love Halloween, but I love my wife more. I just like hanging out with her. She’s the best. Now you may go about your day, realizing that love just is. I hope it finds you, and hits you in the face like a wet mackerel.
