Misgivings Day Weekend is Coming Up!

on September 10, 2012 - 2:33pm

Cool breeze, blue sky. Feels like fall. And it should, becaaaauuuuuuse....

It's that time of year again! Two years ago it was decided there needed to be a holiday weekend to mark the approach of Halloween. It is to Halloween what Thanksgiving is to Christmas.

"It takes place the 7th Sunday before Halloween, which means this coming weekend is Misgivings Day Weekend!

How to celebrate? Well that's easy. Eat as much fall fare (like pumpkin ale, trick or treat candy which is now on sale at the stores, pies both savoury and sweet) as humanly possible. Work on Halloween props, decor and projects. Watch horror movies and break out Halloween cartoons.

Been wondering if it's too early to decorate? No problem! It's Misgivings Day weekend, which means the Halloween season has officially begun. Do as you please. And if anyone asks why you're decorating so soon, just point to the calendar with an expression that clearly conveys a "duh" sentiment."

So make sure you pick up all your treats, supplies, and favourite flicks for the weekend. I know I will be working on props for this year's theme (soon to be announced)!

Ugh! And I already agreed to help my sister finish painting her pasture fence this weekend. But she did offer up bribes of a bonfire & BBQ. I'm sure I can work something in there since I won't be at my own house!

Lisa: You could take breaks with Pumpkin ale. Or perhaps convince  your sister to paint the fence orange and black? Or candy corn colours? ;)

HS: You HAVE to be in. Your handle says so *wink*

FQ: Like you need an excuse...but isn't it nice to HAVE one?
