This is Halloween!

I absolutely love Halloween!  I have been swamped with homework and studying for exams, but I just couldn't let this month go by without creating an appropriately themed clipart pack!  As someone with a late October birthday, I always felt like the nearby holiday was an extension of my own celebration.  Nearly every single birthday party I had as a kid was costumed and full of witches, spiders, and creepy things.  Though I'm too old to go trick-or-treating, and don't yet have kids of my own to take around (in exchange for a modest candy-fee), I do enjoy answering the door and greeting all the cute little monsters begging for sweets.  

I still remember my 3rd or 4th Halloween, being carried around asking for candy, dressed as a parrot with green dye in my hair.  I have never been the typical trick-or-treat-then-binge-till-I'm-sick kind of a person.  Even as a kid I would eat a few candies at a time, and frequently have to empty a few pieces out of my bag every year from the previous haul.  I love candy, and I like it to last!

Not only do I love Halloween candy, but I just can't get enough of the cute decorations!  (I hate the creepy stuff.)  If I could, I would decorate with adorable pumpkins and grinning monsters all year long.  And, speaking of pumpkins, have you ever made a pie from a fresh one?!  There are no words...

There is so much to enjoy about this fun holiday, and so many great ideas and opportunities for creativity!  I can't wait until I finish school and someday have kids of my own to dress up as little mummies and Frankenstein's monsters.  I hope I'm able to help them love the holiday as much as I do!
