Halloween: Our Neighborhood's Pre-Winter Last Hurrah

Wednesday, October 31, 2007
One of the things I love most about Halloween is the way it brings everyone outdoors for one last hurrah before the snow starts to fall and everyone is less inclined to stand outside and chat for prolonged periods of time.

I tend to end up pulling front door duty -- handing out the loot to the one hundred or more trick-or-treaters who wind their way through our subdivision every year -- which means I have to stay within candy-grabbing distance of the front door.

My husband takes our 10-year-old trick-or-treating while the three teenagers do their own thing: either hanging out with friends or waiting to scavenge any cast-off candy from their younger brother when he arrives home in one of those magical moments that can erupt between siblings.

"Yuck. I hate this kind. It tastes like toothpaste. Here -- you can have it."


Warm Drink, Cool Day.
