“What are you doing for Halloween?” I asked our newly-pregnant neighbour.
“We don’t celebrate Halloween. We only buy candy and eat it ourselves.” She replied.
“Oh. Any reason why you don’t celebrate Halloween?”
“Its because we’re Christians. We believe it is celebrating the devil.” She stated coolly.
“So, no costume for you.”
“No, I’ll still dress up.” She described her costume.
“Its supposed to be sexy.” An air of reprimand in her voice.
“Are you going anywhere in your costume?” I ask.
“Yeah. Me and my boyfriend are going to the bar.”
I’m confused. Kids trick-or-treating is celebrating the devil but a pregnant girl going to a bar with her boyfriend is fine?
