I don't do Halloween like I used to when I was growing up, when my kids were growing up. They're grown up enough now that I don't even really need to think about it. So, I crawl into my cave and turn off my outside lights so I don't have to be bothered with the door knocking. I hate to break the hearts of the neighborhood kids with nothing to give them. Nope...I don't even give out candies and definitely don't decorate. Call me a Halloween Scrooge...I don't care. lol Halloween just doesn't happen anymore. But, I do have some very fond memories of my own trick or treating days. lol And, some great memories of when I used to take my children out to do the same. You know....when it was safer!
Seems like it was only yesterday when my daughter was dressing up as a yellow "M & M". She was the cutest thing, especially since she has a beautiful chocolate complexion. I don't remember what my son used to dress as since that was much longer ago than my daughters trick or treating days. I do remember one neighborhood we lived in, in particular, where my kids would go out and come back with a green garbage bag full of stuff for me to sort through. (Making sure no idiot tampered with anything). Seems kind of greedy now that I think about it. lol Oh, but they didn't go door to door with a green garbage bag. Oh no....they had the traditional pillow case or regular plastic garbage bag. lol Those little jack o lantern buckets just weren't cutting it. Sometimes in the middle of trick or treating they would come home and empty their bags only to go back out again. It was all about hanging out with the friends and being silly. (I did it too) Oh yes, and trying to fill those UNICEF boxes. Remember those? Do they even still do those?
Anyways...in keeping with the theme of Halloween I thought I would share a Classic that I also shared on Facebook for the day. Michael Jackson's THRILLER! RIP Michael.
