I hope everyone here has a wonderful and spooky hallowe'en.

Anytime I think I'm perfect, I remember that my cousin lives on an island, and I've never walked over to visit her.

I passed out candy this year (as usual). I had 54 kids come to my door. One little girl in a frothy pink costume tripped and went down pretty hard on my walkway. The kids get so excited. Every year there is at least one kid who says or does something funny. On Halloween I leave my door unlocked because I am constantly having to open it. Okay, so the doorbell rang and as I was walking toward the door, I heard the doorknob turn and the door open. I heard a boy say "You're not supposed to open the door! You're supposed to wait until they open it!" So I got to the door and there were two little boys standing there. The younger boy said to me in a tone of utter frenzy "WHY DIDN'T YOU OPEN THE DOOR!??"

I haven't been outside this morning but the morning after Halloween, my lawn is usually littered with candy and costume parts. I know for a fact there is a pink, glow-in-the-dark bracelet in my flower bed. I ate so much candy myself I am surprised I wasn't up vomitting in the middle of the night. Onward to Thanksgiving!

Wow. We didn't get ANY trick-or-treaters. It's so different these days, at least where I live. In recent years, trick-or-treating has changed so much. Instead of just going to their own neighborhood, kids get in the car with mom and/or dad, and they cruise to a tightly-packed little development and the kids race around and get candy, get back in the car, and go home. If you actually have a yard, no one comes to your house. Precious candy-grabbing minutes can be lost if you have to walk more then five feet between doors.



It's sad, because we had a Carl Sagan Pumpkin my brother carved. It's also probably good, because I would have cried if anyone had smashed it.

times have changed. Man, it would be great if the kids trick or treated in our neighborhood. what with about 5 acres to each property and long driveways, the kids would steadily be burning off the candy!! They would end up eating it all in order to finish the trick or treating! Plus, there's no street lights or anything, so it'd be really scary. Plus, they might have to compete with mountain lions, badgers, bears, etc. A perfect scary and physical night!!

After walking all over our dark neighborhood last year with very few homes participating in Halloween, I decided we would trick-or-treat at the mall this year. And it was a big success!! The mall was packed with little and big monsters and ghouls of all kinds!! The mall had a face painting lady and a clown balloon lady. The kids got awesome face paint and we walked the whole mall, both levels, and they got a ton of candy in a safe bright atmosphere. Most of the stores participated and some ran out of candy before we got to them, but I think this is the way to go from now on. I didn't see hardly any houses decorated in our town this year; it has dwindled every year for a long time. So YAY! for the mall!

That's what we did with my son. We did the mall as well as a daytime outdoorsy event that included trick or treating in a neighborhood. It's a shame things have changed. I loved going door to door in neighborhoods. It's still done around here, but it's pretty cold and with a young un doesn't really work. So, the mall works very well!!

The Big Bad.

Heywood Banks has a song called "Halloween" that describes exactly this^ this slow death of traditional Halloween. We need a "take back the night" for Halloween.
