Yes, it's true. Shauna and I skipped Halloween. We didn't carve our pumpkin. We didn't give out candy. We didn't even answer the door any of the times it was knocked on. (Note to kids: if all of the lights are out and there's no jack-o-lantern, you're probably wasting your time.) And you know what? I'm okay with that.
Every now and then, we deserve to take some time off from a holiday. Aunt Melanie took Christmas "off" last year because she was just plain tired of dealing with it. I say more power to her. If you don't feel motivated to decorate, buy gifts or whatever else is socially expected of you for whatever occasion it is that's coming up, there is no reason you should make yourself unhappy just to blend in.
What about you? Do you sometimes say "bah" to a holiday to take the day off?
