Has it ever rained on your Halloween?
It never did when I was still the age to be celebrating Halloween, and it occured to me a few months ago how lucky that was. I began wondering if that ever WOULD happen.
And here’s the weird thing: coincidentally, the same year as I began thinking about it, that is what happened!
I kept wondering:
Would all the kids just stay home? If so, did everyone who spent money on costumes and candy just waste it? Do they have to wait a whole year to have their next chance? And how did this make the kids whose first Halloween this was feel?
It occured to me that everyone could treat the next night like Halloween instead, but what’s more likely is that even though everyone will think of that, they won’t be able to know that everyone else has thought of it too, and so no one will be inspired to take action, leaving Halloween just ignored this year.
Some of you must have had it rain or snow on October 31, or even expect it every year. What did/would you do in that situation?
