The title of this post is a bit deceiving, because as I’ve stated — oh, a thousand times or so — I don’t really like Halloween at all! But I put on a happy face for my students this time of year, and sing “I Like Halloween” with plenty of (believable) enthusiasm.
Lisa Casciola, MT-BC (owner of Kids Sing Studio) is my former internship supervisor who turned me on to this song and Cathy Bollinger’s music in general. Cathy was a huge inspiration to me as I began songwriting, and even responded to an email I sent her a couple of years ago asking for some advice. Her words of encouragement went a long way, and now my music is listed right alongside hers on Songs For Teaching. Pretty amazing!
Anyway, getting back to this song. I love its versatility, not to mention that it’s short, memorable, and catchy. A nice one to have in your bag of tricks, for sure. I’ve learned all kinds of new things about my students through this song, and I now know what each of them are planning to dress up as for Halloween and what kind of candy they are hoping to receive. So much Halloween fun, so little time…only one more week until we move on to Thanksgiving. Thank goodness!
