Do you like Halloween? It has always been one of my favorite times of year. When my children were young it was such an exciting day for us. I usually made their costumes and we met my sisters and their cousins at my mom’s and had a big ole party. I enjoyed seeing all the children dressed up and some of the parents too. Seems to me people really got involved in the mood of the day back then, not so much now, here, in this neighborhood. I had 0 trick or treaters last year! 0! The year before I had 3. I love to decorate, but no one else even puts out a jack-o-lantern and most don’t even turn on a porch light! What is up with these people?! Who would want to let their kids go knock on someone’s door that does not even have the path lit up? I don’t even decorate much any more, in fact now October 1st brings a month of depression!
My Grands really love Halloween, of course their parents (my kids) loved it too. They all live in a different city and when Halloween falls during the week I don’t get to see them. I do get to see pictures, but it isn’t the same thing at all. I miss the kids, the laughter, the candy, the fun.
