Yes, I'm bizarre in that I start celebrating before Halloween. Of course there are the nay-sayers that say what about Halloween and what about Thanksgiving. DON'T GET ME WRONG, I love those holidays but, to me, they're all a part of the season.
There's not much else to say, I just love this time of year. From the food, music, parties, traditions, spirit, scents, candles, movies, to the clothes, trips, and shopping. You'll catch me at my happiest during the months of October-January hehe.
