Happy Halloween- Are You a Trickster or Treater???

 

Second only to Christmas, Halloween was the day that most children, including this old kid, most looked forward to when I was growing up. Now it may be Black Friday or Cyber Monday!

It was not atypical for it to rain on Halloween night when I was growing up in Houston. I remember my cousin, Charles, dropped his bag in a very wet gutter one year. I felt so badly for him I’m pretty sure I shared my candy with him.

 

Life was simpler back in the 50’s as well. One of our neighbors made wonderful homemade popcorn balls, another gave away real homemade cookies (none of that store bought stuff).

Now, we would inspect our children’s bags and throw all of that stuff away.

 

Another fun neighbor asked us to either sing a short verse of a song, howl at the moon or scream like a witch. His Halloween treats that he gave away were some of the best!

Today that person would probably be hauled away by children’s protective services.

 

Tonight will be pizza night to make it easier to eat and hand out candy. I wonder how many pizzas are sold/delivered on Halloween??

Happy Halloween!!!!

So true...times have changed. The candy is still there though. We have been told by neighbors to expect no more than 10 kids. I hope we get at least that and more. Going out now to buy some candy. I'm going to eat whatever I don't hand out so it has to be something I like...probably Reese's or Snickers.

Sharon Tara I buy two sets...the set I hand out first are the candies that I don't care for but kids like them. The second set has candy that I like so if I don't give it away, I'll eat it. 

Anna Banana Kruchten CRB, CRS 602-380-4886 I just now turned off the lights. I was ready to sit and relax.

Kathy, you can imagine Halloween at our house when all 11 kids were there and going out trick-or-treating. My mother would take all the candy, and give us some each day.  It was always fun!  Tonight we had 52 kids at the door with their parents in the background. Our neighbors came up on the porch with their kids to say hello.

OH my gosh, you so described my childhood Halloweens, Kathy! And, you're so right - all homemade goodies are removed. So sad, isn't it?! 

BUT, I have to say, I don't know of any homemade trick-or-treat candy that I would like more than a Reece's cup! LOL

Morning Kathy.

With a high in the mid 50's rain and wind we only had one kiddie show up.  Now, what to do with all the candy...
