Truth: I’m not a fan of Halloween. Costumes have never been a big deal to me, I never cared about trick-or-treating, and people knocking on my door asking for candy all night just scares my cats.* (My friend Becky once commented that extroverted people seem to like Halloween — and I’m most definitely an introvert.) Which is why I haven’t created a single piece of Halloween stationery or art until now. But I have to say, when you take the best parts of Halloween (pretty Dia de los Muertos sugar skulls and marigolds, black cats) and leave all the rest, October doesn’t seem too bad at all. So, for the Halloween lovers, these cute new cards are a great way to make sure everyone knows how much you love the spooky holiday (and that if they want candy this month, you’ll definitely have it). And for the people like me, just jot down a friendly autumn message to your pals, hit up the post office, and hunker down until November 1.
*Parents spend all year telling their kids to never, ever talk to or take candy from strangers — it’s literally a cliche. Except on Halloween. When children should definitely go out and ask strangers to give them candy. Mixed messages much?
