Halloween is such a funny celebration. One that both children and adults can embrace with equal enthusiasm (as demonstrated by my very own family). There is something about being able to dress up in costume that really appeals to adults. I find it funny how many really sexy costumes there are. Revealing Alice in Wonderland outfits with hemlines that are so short that most would be horrified to see them on any other night of the year. How nice to have an excuse to get all tarted up and not suffer any lingering effects to one's reputation or image.
It's only 9:15am and I've already had two mini KitKat bars. But I've also had three diet Cokes which I believe cancels them out.
Trick or Treating has seemed to lose favor these past few years. At least in the neighborhood where I grew up. When I was a child the streets would be filled with throngs of dressed up kids, criss-crossing the streets. Now we consider ourselves lucky if we get even ten trick or treaters. We are even happy to see the surly teenagers that must not get out much the rest of the year since I never recognize any of them. Even though most of them don't even wear costumes.
When we went Trick or Treating when I was younger the adults accompanying us would often carry a highball glass and get a treat themselves at certain houses. See? Fun for all ages.
Have a safe evening everyone. Tomorrow we can officially start talking about Christmas.
