We only had about 6 or 8 trick or treater's last night!
How times have changed!
When I was a kid we would go out ( a group of kids alone). Leave about 5 pm and not get home until 9 or 10pm. No one worried about our safety because all parents watched out for all children.
We walked for miles. It wasn't a quiet holiday like today. We hooted and shouted and would see who could make the loudest witch scream. When someone would answer the door we would scream to the top of our lungs....trick or treat...smell my feet...give me something good to eat!!!!! And we always said...Thank You!
If we didn't get a treat or someone didn't answer their door..... It was a production of badness that followed. We would get up our courage, throw leaves on their porches and run away laughing...Boy did we get them!!!!
We also made our own costumes out of things around the house.
Last night the children had adults guards with them and walked quitely to the door. They didn't even say Trick or Treat...They just stood there with their candy pouches opened. I told them how cute they looked with no reply..Not even a Thank You!
It was kinda sad to this old ....stay out 4 or five hours and come home with a pillow case that I had to drag, person!!!!!!
Just no excitement in halloween night anymore.....so sad..
