Sadly I work this evening so I’ll miss the opportunity for the visits by the neighborhood kids dressed in costume. I love thanking them with pre-filled bags of candy. We’ve live in this house for 15 years now and the amount of children varies greatly from year to year. Some years we get zero while others we’ve given out at least 50 bags.
Needless to say, this year we’re still prepared.
I’ve loved Halloween ever since I was a kid and remember going to parties and running around with friends all dressed up. I hope you have similar good memories and are able to make this day a fun one for the children of your neighborhood. It’s easy- all you need is candy. Decorations make for a better experience but at the end of the day- the fullness of the candy bag is really all that matters, right?
While I don’t assume everyone who reads this actually celebrates this day- I’m hoping you’ll at least savor the moments of today before we all become bombarded with Christmas shopping ads that’ll likely start tomorrow. I was in CVS last night and saw the store clerks preparing the store already. Today will be the last day I’ll see Michael Myers, Jason, Freddie Krueger and every other televised serial killer of the American teenager being run back-to-back for awhile.
Either way, enjoy today!
