This is without a doubt my favorite holiday. I just love this time of year. I do wish it was a little more like fall here, but that’s what happens when you live in a desert. One of my earliest memories is of my mom taking me trick-or-treating. We didn’t have a lot of money, so she always made my costumes. I went as a ghost more than one year. That’s not to say my mom couldn’t sew–she could. Unlike me. *g* Anyway, without fail about midway through trick-or-treating I’d have to go to the bathroom. (I don’t remember drinking a lot as a kid before leaving, but I must have.) We were never near home when this happened. I always had to use someone’s bathroom. It was fairly normal for the scene to play out thus: Hits doorbell. Person opens door. Trick-or-Treat. Candy is dispensed. Can she use your bathroom? Yeah, fun times. 😆
Nowadays, I like handing out candy. It’s fun to see the little ones come to the door. They’re both excited and terrified because they haven’t quite gotten over the ‘you’re a stranger I don’t want to talk to you’ stage. Of course, these days a lot of kids go to the mall and trick or treat. I’m pretty sure I would’ve hated that when I was a kid. After all, whose bathroom would I have used? 😉
What’s your favorite thing about Halloween? Do you have a favorite memory?
