Trunk or Treat in Sandy UT, another source of candy

trunk or treat

After all these years I still find the ferocity of the celebration of Halloween more than a bit strange, macarbe even.

All the weird bits coming so close together. Halloween, The Day of the Dead, All Saints, All Souls. Mixtures of religion and superstition, costumes and CANDY.

I believe we spend considerable time warning our children of the dangers of accepting candy from strangers, and yet at this time of the year we set  them loose to maraude neighborhoods and monster hapless people for sweet treats. And then the sugar rush...

After an afternoon in the city tangled in witches, goblins, zombies, princesses, ninja and super heroes, (and let's not forget the pumpkins) it was more of a relief to observe our local children in Sandy UT enjoying a "Trunk or Treat" as a concentrated party in a Church carpark, under parental supervision, and safely contained.

All ages enjoying themselves, and scoring candy to excess. My wizard hat, even in the dark, was not much of a disguise, as I was greeted by name all over. The bag on my chair even got unexpected donations of sweets.

With Halloween over, I suspect we will now be inundated with Christmas Carols.

Larry, such cute kids. It sounds like you are quite well known and loved in Sandy Utah. Have a great weekend and my advice is that anyone looking to buy or sell a home in the Sandy area should contact Larry O'Sullivan

Larry, live in a gated community so control was good. Problem is some people did not participate and kept their lights off! Grandson had a blast! Enjoy your day!

HI Larry.  I think there's a universal delight in dressing up in costumes.  For just a little while we enjoy  pretending to be someone more exciting or powerful.  And adults don't outgrow it, either -- look at Mardi Gras or the Comic-con Conventions!  The candy is just icing on the cake!

Noah - thanks. I always participate in local events. It's fun when children introduce me to their parents.

Wayne - Our doobell playing "Yellow Rose of Texas" at full blast still got a workout. Even in the cooler weather, the kids get out.

Dianne - all of the above. O'Larry the Clown has his range of costumes. Zorro in a wheelchair is my most difficult to pull off ~ sword keeps getting tangled. With my current beard, I am mistaken for Santa, months ahead. Now to get my Real Estate costume on for the day...

Larry, thanks for sharing these happy faces! Costumes are fun on Halloween and I love the concept of Trunk or Treat because families are involved in the well being of their children. They know where the candy is coming from. Your photos are a great collection of families that play together and stay together.
