Scary Time of Year? When asked this question many people would say tax day in April, not in October. That is unless you were young and your imagination was still not yet stifled. A time when goblins and ghosts and superheros and reality stars can all still be believed. Halloween is a magical time of year with a long and varied history. The giving of sweet treats was begun years ago as an effort to ward off the neighborhood children doing tricks to the house on that night. It was a shakedown.
So of course wearing of costumes was a must. Today we have children out in our neighborhoods wearing this years costume or last years, or one their mom made at your doorstep. There is an innocence and joy to this evening, and a real big sugar high. I remember my son’s last romp around the neighborhood collecting candy. The evening had somehow morphed into how fast they two tweeners could run and who could gather the most candy by number-not weight.
It what exhausting and a great memory all at the same time. Whether you are a first time home buyer or looking to find a new home, give me a call. I know all the houses with the best treats.
