Lovely comments

  1. Hello, Just wanted to say your set-up looks wonderful and you have some great ideas. I do have to say, though, that I considered one of your ideas actually more “scary and creepy” than “fun and spooky,” and that would be the jar of pixie sticks labeled “Anthrax.” As someone who was raising young children in NYC during the attack on the World Trade Center and the terrifying days that followed—including anthrax scares, both real and imagined—I found this to be an odd choice. I couldn’t even let my kids touch the incoming mail because we didn’t know how many post offices had been contaminated or where the next horrible thing was coming from. This probably seems like an over-reaction, and maybe it is: I do get that Halloween makes fun of our fears and that there are plenty of people who don’t like to see skeletons (recent death of a loved one), blood and gore (lost a relative in a car accident), or rubber rats (phobia of rodents), so we can’t just stop Halloween from happening because of them. I guess maybe I just found it a little too specifically shocking to label something in fun as “anthrax” when maybe “magic potions” or “sleeping spells” or even, generically, “poison” would have done as well. Just my two cents, and I’m not trying to make you feel bad. Thanks.
