Another Hallowe’en over.
It was the first time I gave out candy in my own house. Very fun. Last year we had a food drive so we weren’t able to indulge the trick ‘r treaters, but this year we postponed the food drive for Christmas time so we could do the Hallowe’en thing in our own neighbourhood.
Our neighbours’ strange tendency to socialize and spend time in their driveways turned out to be quite enjoyable on this spookiest of nights. Everyone was outside their houses handing out candy and chatting with each other… I liked it.
I must say, though, a lot of kids didn’t seem to know the Hallowe’en contract: Demand treats, threaten tricks. Kids weren’t saying “Trick or Treat.” I had to force them to say it before I gave them candy and now I’m probably the neighbourhood weirdo.
Thea took Nathanael around the neighbourhood in his Superman costume. Of course… now we have a bag of candy. I’ve put it in a bowl to share with guests… Unfortunately by the time we have a guest the candy will be all gone.
