It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas. . .

and it's not yet Halloween.
I see the snow as it fell
and now on the ground as well
And it's coverin' up all the leaves.

It's beginning to feel a lot like Christmas, and not like Halloween.

I mean, with this weather what are you supposed to do to make Halloween an enjoyable holiday? I have some suggestions for surviving this year's Colorado Halloween

  • Make a snowman and dress him up as a ghost.
  • Use your jack-o-lantern for the head of you snowman.
  • Use snow for the fake graves in your yard instead of leaves.
  • Break out your thermal underwear to wear under your costume.
  • Dress up as the old neighbor from Home Alone and walk around with a snow shovel and a trash can full of deicer.
  • Dress up as Santa Clause, 'cause you'll fit right in.
  • Be happy that your kids will get tired of being cold before their candy bags get very full.
  • Smile and exclaim, "We should have icicles on Halloween every year."
  • Put out your lawn Christmas decorations so that they see some snow this year.
  • Organize a neighborhood candy swap. Everybody shows up in one location and you do all the candy swapping in 5 minutes and then you all go home.
  • Put on your favorite Halloween (or Christmas) movie and boycott the weather entirely.
Just some suggestions to make your holiday a little more enjoyable.

Maybe we should celebrate Christmas this weekend, since the weather doesn't match the holiday, maybe the holiday should be made to match the weather.

Well, we practiced Christmas music on the piano, made sugar cookies, and paper snowflakes. I think you're right, Christmas must've come early. :)

I can't believe you are getting so much snow already. I loved your list though. Seems quite true!!

What a fun post! :) I especially like the idea of changing the holiday to match the weather! How fun!

Since we moved to Texas (with the exception of last year...which was perfect) it has either been HOT or FREEZING. Never a happy medium. This year promises to be a cold one, too. No snow, though.

Oh...we are coming for just a couple of days in December. If the roads are clear we should see if we can meet!
