One Senior's Opinion: Get into the spirit of the season

Halloween lights and decorations are springing up everywhere. Oranges, reds and yellows are the colors of the season. Crops have been harvested, school is well under way and football makes great conversations, especially among guys.  Moms with young children are busy costume shopping or sewing, planning Halloween get-togethers and decorating the house, both inside and out. It's a great time to celebrate.

Whether your celebration is tailgating at a football game or supervising little ones on their trick-or-treat walks, people are in the mood to have some fun. For a short while the TV isn't needed, election commercials can be put on the back burner and grim news from the Middle East seems a bit less terrifying.

Whatever fun activities your family and friends are planning for the next week or so, please take some time to remember those who are unable to celebrate, who may be sick, alone or lonely. Visit a nursing home, donate to a charity which touches your heart or send a care package to someone who is in the Armed Forces.

In the spirit of the season, the Knickerbocker once again invites you to its Freaky Family Fun Open House. Fun and good food will be in abundance and most of all there will be smiles, yes, lots of smiles. Bring the family. The Open House will take place on Tuesday, Oct. 30, at the Knickerbocker, of course, from 6 to 7:30 p.m. There may even be another astounding pumpkin drop.
