Maybe I’m just getting old, but the costumes and decorating for Halloween have just become far too creepy for me. When my son was little and we lived in the city, he didn’t even want to walk down the street for the entire last week of October because of the frightening severed heads hanging from trees and other gruesome scenes.
Thankfully where we live now, the worst we see on a morning walk is a smashed pumpkin some rowdy teens threw at the mailbox.
As a kid I used to love the creative challenge of creating a really great costume, not one mom sewed from a pattern or bought at the store, one I made for myself.
Do kids do that anymore?
I don’t know about you, but I’m looking forward to tomorrow when all the chocolate goes on sale for half price! Okay, maybe I’d better avoid the stores for another week!!!
