Halloween. The holiday conjures up memories of cool autumn evenings, and children running door-to-door with parents or older siblings shadowing them for safety’s sake, and booty. When I say booty, I mean candy, lots of it. That’s me, an adult who as a child -or-treater” who came home with enough candy in one night to put a horse into a diabetic coma.
After my parents screened the candy, removing things that appeared questionable, and eating some of it when I wasn’t looking. It would be rationed out over the next few weeks and in many cases it was near Thanksgiving when I finally finished enjoying the last few pieces.
My father was an ace when it came to carving pumpkins. They weren’t cheery smiling creatures, when he was finished with them they were snarling, and very menacing in appearance. I miss those days.
Today, “Trick-or-Treating” has for all practical purposes disappeared in many places. Now today, people are more likely to dress up their pets and send their children to official Halloween parties, where they can feel more comfortable about the “safety” issues. Pumpkin carving? Well, it’s now a competitive sport on the Food Network.
