Happy Halloween everyone! I love this time of year and am busy getting my apartment ready for all of the kids that will be passing through tomorrow night. I usually decorate my door and carve a pumpkin so kids know I am a ‘trick or treat friendly’ household! Many people in Montreal don’t celebrate the holiday so it is nice to make it apparent for the kids.
I encourage you to do the same, no matter where you live! As children, we knew not to visit the houses with their lights completely out but sometimes there were houses with all of the lights on that we would knock at only to be yelled at or something terrible. Since then, I only went to homes with a Jack O’ Lantern or similar decoration. Now I want to help kids know they should visit my home for yummy treats!
Which gets me thinking, what were some of your favorite treats to receive on Halloween growing up? There were certain homes that would give out full size chocolate bars that you knew to go back to every year. I also loved getting Coffee Crisp, Kit Kat, Reece’s Pieces and Mars bars. I hated those terrible rocket candies and there were always so many of those left at the bottom of my pillowcase.
I went trick or treating up on and off up until high school because I just loved dressing up and the free candy! Now I could never eat so many sweets in one sitting.
I love seeing the kids and their great costumes and how excited and happy they are. Since I went around for so many years the least I can do is do it myself for the kids! But like I said I love this holiday and am happy to oblige. 🙂
