The best part of hitting the end of October is Halloween! My twin 4-year old girls will be dressed in princesses (Belle and Aurora) for the event and they’ve been asking about that day for most of the month. It’s always fun to take them out trick and treating in our friendly neighborhood so I’ll be enjoying it as much as them tomorrow night.
Cold is finally showing up after a warmer than usual October that devastated natural gas prices and inflicted a decent paper loss on my gassy stocks. November might be a repeat of October so there could still be pain down the pipe before a turnaround. All the above average temperatures might just be a reminder of global warming in action. Speaking of the environment, I came by an interesting article about the carbon footprints of Halloween treats.
I say there’s no point stressing about this once a year event. Let it go and focus on bigger issues than this. Homemade treats will never be an acceptable alternative because you want to save on the wrappers!
