I don't know where you may fall on the whole 'Halloween Thing". I have friends who love Jesus who sincerely believe it's solely Satanic and part of the downfall of our
family-values bubble world. On the other hand, I have other friends who passionately pursue Jesus and still approach Halloween with all the vigor of Quentin Tarantino and Rob Zombie.
Regardless, October 31 officially begins Chocolate Season in TomLand.
So, today I am officially declaring today 'Opening Day'. As any zit-marked, diabetic teen knows, Chocolate Season begins at Halloween, runs through Thanksgiving Day, Christmas Day, New Year's Day, Valentine's Day…and doesn't officially conclude until Easter. And, in most cases, it's extended through June, to cover Mother's Day and Father's Day!
Sa-weet Lord….Gracias a Dios!
I realize Chocolate Season makes it hard to prepare for Swimsuit Season, but with all the talk these days about skin cancer, overexposure, and the damaging rays of the sun, Chocolate Season is a much better (and healthier!) option.
I hope you'll join me! Let the games begin.
