|Danny was not happy at being dressed up as Hedwig from Harry Potter, but the tail was just so cute!|
|Aah, boxes! With no armholes! I'm the cheese!|
|Ben just wasn't feeling the love that night|
And if you wanted trick-or-treaters you would put your porch light on and turn it off if you ran out of candy or didn't want to be bothered. Today, kids just bang on everyone's door, whether their lights are on or off. And parents encourage it! (Boy do I sound like a grumpy old fart or what!?!?)
Trick-or-treating could be an expensive thing when you're pressed for money. It's great to go out and get the free treats, but sometimes getting the costume wasn't so easy. We were lucky. My mom was incredibly crafty...after all she was an art major in college! Homemade costumes! I'm sure some kids didn't like them. We did.

Stop complaining! I survived my childhood and now I get to torment you! When you have kids, you can torment them, now let's get some candy!
(A little fun break from my Royal Charter posts, but they'll return tomorrow!)
