So, my kids didn’t “do” Halloween this year. Growing up we never did, other than giving out candy and being home before dark, and without the fun memories most people have about it, I just don’t care much about the holiday. Nothing against it, really (except the part where the hoodlums egg your car and house – hey, I grew up in NYC.). It just seems like a lot of work for the costumes, blah blah so I just didn’t want to bother. The kids didn’t seem to care.
But, when they saw photos of their cousins and friends’ trick or treating experience, they suddenly got a hankering to do the door to door thing. So, I let them dress up and go to all the doors of our house, and handed them a treat at each door. So, at least I got the photo op without any of the walking in the cold. 🙂 My favorite kind of trick.
