Boo!

Happy All-Hallows-Even (“evening”)!

Halloween was an exciting time growing up. It was always, simply amazing to me that dressed in my devil costume, I could walk up to any house, to peoples’ houses I had never met, never seen, say “trick or treat” and get loads of candy piled into my bag. Often, we had to stop home and get a second bag we ‘hit’ so many places. Yes, that lil’ red devil did pretty well for himself each October 31, much to Dr. Richards’ (my dentist) delight.

  1. When my kids were little, I used to have a great time greeting the kiddies at the door in my costume. I think I'll resurrect that next year, but this year I'll just be another boring adult with a halloween blouse handing out candy. Love the masks; friends of yours??

  2. After living in Europe so many years, it was a shock to return to the States and be reminded of the huge Halloween industry and festivities. We still have to be reminded each year that people celebrate this day so avidly.

  4. Funny shot! I always loved Halloween too. It was a time to become something you weren't and test the waters. Hope we get lots of kids at my house tonight.

  9. I can remember heading out with a pillow case for a bag and coming home to empty it out a few times!

  10. I grew up in a rural area and we only had a Halloween carnival at school. We were lucky to get a candied apple! I never (in my entire life) went trick or treating. Maybe that's why I've never been too enthused about it. But I do love to see the little itty-bitty ones in their costumes.

  11. I cannot remember halloween in England as a child. It was very popular in Scotland though. Now it is everywhere.
