Almost Halloween

Halloween is just around the corner. Every year the question arises, "What day will the kids be trick or treating"? Saw an article in the paper just today. Supposedly its better or worst to observe Halloween on certain days of the week with parents working, schools in session and church activities going on.

Really?

I don't know about yall, but when I was a kid, Halloween was Halloween. One Day! October 31st. It did not matter what day of the week it fell on. If it fell on a Sunday then us heathens would go after church.
Our church does a "trunk or treat" each Halloween. The grown ups decorate their car trunks with a theme and hand out candy and church tracks. Its a safe place for kids around here to grab candy and a blessing all at the same time.

Go after dark.

That's another thing. Kids come out too early. Wait til its dark! Its more goolish that way and the parents have time to get home from work and get the candy bowls ready.

Those that do not like Halloween will not hand out candy or go out dressed up no matter what day of the week it is so just let those little devilish, candy hungry goblins enjoy Halloween on Halloween.

Meanwhile, I'm going to enjoy a little boo peep in my cocoa.

  1. I agree, Halloween should be on Halloween. Unless weather screws it up.

    I remember Simpson Halloween episodes would happen in November. Like WTF?

  5. Yep, Halloween should be on THE day. Funny how I remember Halloween being so much fun. We didn't even have trick or treating. We did do a lot of tricking though. The only store bought things were masks, if even that. The costume was left up to the imagination.

    Here in Florida is the first time we have been in a residential area at Halloween. I am shocked and amazed at the amount spent on decorations, it is like Christmas in decorating.
    But the main thing is the kids have fun. I am sure they ejoy it as much as we did, plus they get CANDY! This is the first year in 20 we have bought more than a $1 bag of assorted candies and we usually ended up eating that. This time we bought a $14 bag looking at the number of kids in the ares, we hope that is enough.

    1. Be aware Jack. There is not only the neighborhood kids, but if its like here, they come in car loads from other neighborhoods. Half the time they are not even dressed up and holding pillow cases. But of course I do live on the West side. :)

  7. I agree with you Lisa that Halloween should be celebrated on Halloween. Any parties can be done the weekend before. The little peep is so cute in your hot chocolate! Have a wonderful weekend.
