Everyone complains that Christmas stole from the pagan religions, but in this case, it’s Pagans who took over this holiday. He wouldn’t go door to door asking for candy. He would go to every door in the neighborhood and tack 95 theses to the door explaining how everyone is ruining “All Hallows Eve”. It’s better than the bag of 95 feces on my doorstep. Happy Reformation Day!
Tub of Guts suit. What’s funnier than a fat person, right? I guess if you can dress as a skeleton then corpulence should be fine.
Jesus is about the only religious figure left that’s safe for ridicule (but not for all eternity). He’s the most tolerant of all the deities, and he died for your sins, so why not tempt fate and your eternal soul with a little blasphemous masquerading. Plus, it might be helpful to keep those demoniacs bound while you trick or treat.
In light of what’s appropriate or not for Halloween, we try to dress ourselves and children in costumes that won’t offend. Well, at least most of the population that don’t get offended. You know, like Fat Irish Christians.
I’m not talking about from a religious but a practical perspective. Here are a few reasons to skip it.
Buying a costume
My kids get clothes for their birthday and Christmas. Why should I buy them an outfit for a single day that will rip within a week after? If you must have a costume, make one out of clothes you don’t like can go as “ungrateful person who has too many clothes”
Candy is overpriced from September 1st to October 31st. However, if you want a good deal on candy, wait until November 1st and stock up. Who cares if there are pumpkin-shaped Reeses’ in your Christmas candy dish.
Having too much candy
There is too much candy in the house and it’s everywhere. It ruins your ketosis and sometimes your relationships if strategically shared.
People that live near you will put up haunting displays of violence and paganism. You have to drive past it everytime you leave for your volunteering at the senior community.
It doesn’t have to be difficult. Well, it can be if you decide to scratch make your own biscuits from flour you’ve harvested and milk you’ve pulled from the cow. You can also raise your own pigs and grow your own herbs, invest in a meat grinder and create your own sausage. That’s pretty much how the description goes for any Food Network show that creates this dish. Not worth the effort. Here’s a quick fix.
Cook as many Pillsbury Grand buttermilk biscuits as you desire
A roll of Jimmy Dean Sage Sausage, brown it, don’t overcook it
Cover the browned sausage with 1/4 cup of flour
Pour in 2 cups of whole milk over the floury sausage
Add some salt and pepper
Let it get thick and bubbly
Cut the biscuits in half and pour over the sausage gravy.
Or you can put it all in a Vitamix blender with a bit of extra milk and have a Sausage Gravy Shake.
The short answer is when they leave for college. Schooling all year round is important for the whole mastery thing. Giving breaks is important too, like going to Disney World or other big theme parks when everyone else is in school and we have the run of the place.
#3. How do you have the patience to homeschool your kids?
When people ask or say, “I just don’t have the patience to homeschool my kids”. Let me tell you a little secret, we don’t either. But life’s all about overcoming our deficiencies right? Now think about how much patience it takes for one teacher with a classroom of forty kids just like yours.
