If you have visited any of the big box retailers over the past week, you might be under the impression that the next holiday will be Christmas. It seems that each year the Christmas sales start earlier. The truth is that one of my favorite holidays is coming in only three weeks! I love Halloween. As a child, our neighborhood came alive with ghosts and goblins. There was no fear of anyone poisoning candy or putting razor blades in apples. It was a more innocent time. As an adult in the 1980’s B.C. (Before Children), we used to have a huge costume party each Halloween. When our children were young, the focus of the day was once again turned back to trick or treating fun.
Our neighborhood has always been incredibly busy on Halloween. It made for a magical time with our children. It was not unusual to count several hundred trick or treaters visiting our home. We always dressed up and had a great time handing out candy. At one time during the 90’s a Domino’s Pizza truck set up on the corner and sold pizza! Now that most of the children in the neighborhood are grown and have moved away, the crowd has gotten smaller. I still wouldn’t attempt to drive out of the neighborhood after 6:00 p.m., because the streets are still crazy crowded with trick or treaters and cars are lining both sides of the streets. I miss the days when our kids were small and the magic still filled the night.
