Amy and I are preparing to head out for the night. She's packing up her food supply, and doctoring it in advance, so that we can avoid the crush of trick or treaters. I have mixed feelings about Halloween. I went door to door as a kid and never thought anything evil of it. Our kids dressed up for Halloween. My aversion to it now has less to do with my religious beliefs, as it does to the commercialization associated with it, and in all honesty the annoyance of having the doorbell ring every few minutes. We have three dogs...leave them outside on Halloween and they bark their heads off. Bring them inside with the doorbell ringing every few minutes, they bark their heads off.
Therefore we will turn off the lights, and head out the door. We will seek sanctuary.

Starbucks here we come.
