My favourite time of year!
It’s no understatement when I say that I love Halloween! Everything good in life happens for me around this special time of year. My birthday, Halloween parties, get togethers with friends and the celebration of the horror genre – my all time favourite genre – it’s fantastic! Christmas maybe the first holiday you think off when asked what your favourite time of the year is, but halloween is the most under-rated in my book.
Halloween has an atmosphere that is never equalled by any other holiday; it is the one time of the year were people actually try something new, i.e. watch and tell scary stories.
Horror is an often overlooked source of fiction, which is a shame because if we treated it seriously all the time, as we do on Halloween, then the world of fiction would be a far richer place indeed. Just remember to turn off the lights!
