Halloween celebrated on October 31st in our neck of the woods. This year I am not participating, because it is a season of treats and too much temptation for us septuagenarians.
I do enjoy the children dressed up in their costumes going door to door for treats. The little ones are precious, dressed up as bumble bees, pumpkins, ladybugs, Bambi and other homemade costumes. The custom here is to leave your outside light on, then they know that the “Witch is In”. If you leave your light off it means “No tricks or treats”. Usually the children are accompanied by their parents, who stand on the sidewalk and watch their children approach the door. Nowadays, the sweets or candies are usually handed out in sealed wrappers, keeping the little ones safe.
I am not selling this or even endorsing this product but it’s an option for carving those pumpkins.
Remember outside light on or off!
Keep your pets inside and safe!
Check your children’s treats before they dive in to eat them.
What are your memories of Halloween? please share them!
Enjoy a nice glass of apple cider.
