It’s coming up fast. Trick-or-Treating…haunting season is upon us. I’ve watched a few scary movies–including Stephen King’s IT–to get in the mood, and remind me of what all the creepy clown crap is about. Silliness is all. At least it’s a distraction from this presidential election mess… now THAT is scary!
Kevin stopped trick-or-treating a couple years ago, so we have no more kids to walk through the neighborhood begging for candy. Kinda sad, actually. I really enjoy seeing everyone in costumes, out walking around, having a good time. Especially Christmas Lane in Kenosha.
These days, with no more kids to take out trick-or-treating 🙁 I like to take Socks out, in-costume, and walk through Christmas Lane during trick-or-treating, just to enjoy seeing the costumes and decorations all around. Since we live only a few blocks from there now, it’s an easy walk for us. So that’s what Socks and I will be doing this year, on Halloween, 5pm-6pm. Trick-or-treating is 4-6, but I get off work at 4, so I can’t get there until 5pm. It’s sad it’s only 2 hours now. I remember it being a much longer period of time most other years, going well into the night. But with all of the safety concerns with kids out in the dark, they probably feel it’s much safer this way. But I just don’t see why they can’t have it start a few hours earlier, so it’s longer, and still have it end at 6pm, when it starts getting dark… Maybe there’s not enough people home from work to hand out candy if it was earlier…?
