I grew up in a military family, and as you would expect, we moved around quite a bit. When you’re growing up, this can be tough, but it offers you a wide perspective on the world. It also provides you with plenty of perspective on holiday traditions, including Halloween. For the most part, my Halloweens weren’t out of the ordinary. I remember having the classic Halloween experience living in Kentucky, Georgia, and even Panama. My parents made dressing up and going out trick-or-treating feel like “home” no matter where we were. On Halloweens when we were on base, my parents would take me around, and I’d get some pretty good candy from the enlisted folks. It might have helped that everyone knew my father was an officer, and they wanted to make that all-important good impression. I do remember that I always ended up with a lot of candy. These days, my Halloween looks a little different. Long gone are the days of dressing up, but I’m still trick-or-treating. Well, that is to say, I take my nieces out trick-or-treating.

I will also admit that as a Star Wars fan, I’ve been trying to get my nieces into Star Wars . I haven’t been successful yet. At the moment, the oldest is really into dinosaurs and can’t get enough of the Jurassic Park and Jurassic World movies. Maybe next year. This Halloween, however, will be a special one for me personally. I recently bought my first house! I’ve lived in an apartment since graduating law school a couple of years ago. In the process, I’ve learned just how much stuff I’ve accumulated while living in that apartment. That aside, it’s a truly wonderful feeling to have room to really spread out and grow (which may mean I’ll be able to accumulate even more!). And as October 31 approaches, I’m looking forward to participating in Halloween as a homeowner, handing out candy, and really taking part in the annual tradition from the other side.
