Trick or treat! What did you drop in my bucket?
Let’s talk about the very best part of Halloween. Begging for free candy!
Do you remember the anticipation all day long of the time you’d (finally) be allowed to ring neighbors’ doorbells? The frequent prayers to the weather gods that it wouldn’t be so cold that mom would make you put warm clothes under your disguise that transformed you into a fat, puffy fairy princess… and who ever heard of a snow-suited ninja??
Remember the smell and sound of the leaves crunching under your feet as you approached doors? The echoing laughter down the streets and the distant flashes of glow-sticks in the darkness?
Remember how the kid-network knew in 5 minutes, who was giving out full-sized candy bars and who was dropping a religious tract and a couple of smelly, old pennies?
If you are, in fact, a grownup now, what is your “treat” style?
