I can relate to the narrator's lack of enthusiasm for a holiday; when you're down, it can be hard to try and participate in anything joyful. I was having a pretty blah Samhain a couple years ago. I managed to turn that around, though, with the judicious use of retail therapy. More about that here: http://the-vulture.livejournal.com/141930.html

I think that people forget how isolating it can be to lose one's job and home. That cuts you out of most of society. The early poems in Monster House touch on that sense of isolation.
