I hope all the children that partake in Halloween have a wonderful, exciting but safe time.
When I think back I sort of remember how exciting it was, to be going out and get CANDY and as much as you could. A kid’s dream come true. Pillow cases were the order of the day and still are. What great times we had, the 3 Howdle brothers going up and down the street gathering our loot. At times even having to return home temporarily to empty our bags as they were becoming to full or to heavy.
We always went with 3 or 4 other neighbor kids but with no parent supervision. It just wasn’t felt to be needed and really wasn’t back then. It was extremely rare to see a parent out on the street. For us it truly was such and exciting and wonderful time.
I can only hope every child that “hits” the sidewalks this evening will have as much fun as we all did back then.
Now, Vi and I both enjoy going to answer the door and see the cute little ones all dressed up in their costumes.
I hope all will by a few candies and hand them out. It is only once a year and you do brighten the day of a little one, that in itself is worth it.
I am just sitting thinking, isn’t it strange. We spend 364 days of the year telling our children, “DON’T TAKE CANDY FROM STRANGERS” now we are telling them to go out and ask for it?????
I hope a wonderful and safe time is had by all.
