Holiday traditions, seems like each
holiday has them. Families have them
and they hand them down to their kids
plus they make their own.
When I was a little girl, I loved deciding
what I wanted to be for Halloween. So
much went into picking out THE costume
for that year. I loved the party at school
and getting to take my costume with me
to wear at the party.
Now as a big girl who teaches at a school,
I try to come up with something fun but
easy. This year I will reprise my happy
face emoji shirt and add bumble bee
wings and antenna.
Candy, some years we have trick or
treaters and some years we don't have
many. Mr. Ken gets a kick out of seeing
what comes to our door as I do. We aren't
scary like some can be.
Back in the day, we had a house on our
street that was "the must house to go to"
because if you didn't and someone found
out, oh boy. So even if two of us were out
we knew we had to see what Mr. Swenson
was going to do that year.
Parties, we had several when I was little
and I have gone to some as an adult. When
we had them as a child my Dad unbeknownst
to my Mom or I would dress up like a Ghost
and tap on the basement window and scare
the wits out of us. :) Mom did not know that
it was Dad till years after he was gone and
she came across the sheet he used. So funny.
Pumpkins-carving or not? We did at school
with one. I'm not a fan of pumpkin guts.
But have found that cutting it open on the
bottom works oh soooooo much better
that cutting the top off.
We have pumpkins on the porch and I
spray them with clear coat so the squirrels
don't eat them!
What kind of traditions do you have for
Halloween? My friend Leslie, LOVES
