Hasn't this been an interesting week with Halloween smack in the way on boring old Tuesday!? The Mexican kids have figured this scam out and dressed up in outfits and make-up, and ran the neighborhood yelling "Halloween! Halloween! Halloween!" ringing doorbells and otherwise acting like sugarloaded Spidermen and Princesses. I did my part of trying to explain that "trick-or-treat" was the correct way of begging candy but it seemed to fall on deaf ears since this "Halloween" yelling got results in the past.

I have wonderful memories of running my own neighborhood, receiving candy and crushing flowerbeds, and ending up with muddy shoes, grocery-store bags half loaded, and a pleased feeling that I could sustain myself on this loot for weeks!

Upwards and onwards to Thanksgiving.

Even as a kid I wasn't really into Halloween. Now as an adult I just don't it. If seeing the little princesses and super heroes made your day, then I'm glad.

Hi Donna,
We kind of shuttered ourselves in and after the first wave of kids didn't really enjoy it anymore.
I'm a bit undone by the commercial atmosphere anymore. Bah HumBug
