So since my kids have been old enough to wear a costume, they have gone out to collect bucketfulls of sugary treats which, under normal circumstances, would never cross our threshold. And it's still a mixed bag for me. On the one hand, I love to see them get dressed up and head out for fun with the neighborhood kids. On the other hand, I can't stop thinking that I am glorifying a very secular day by letting them head out.
This year, I decided to embrace it despite my conflicted feelings, and even kind of dressed up myself...as a rockstar.
