Confusion, Costumes and Candy

30 Oct

Halloween is the 31st of October, right? I mean, that’s what it says on my $5 scenic sights of the U.S. calendar so it must be so. Or, maybe not.

It seems there are quite a few towns that prefer you to observe the candy collection event on another day if it falls on a Sunday. Some say it has to do with religious reasons. Others say it’s a safety thing. I say I’m confused.

Following the request of our town leaders, we decided to let the kids set out in search of glowing porch lights on Halloween Eve. We didn’t find many but in the end, it really didn’t matter. It gave those of us participating something to talk about and helped limit the amount of sugar the Nia and Nate had at their disposal. Also, the kids didn’t care what day it was that they went trick-or-treating. They got their sweets and felt great when people made a big deal about their costumes. Nate even received requests to jump like Mario. Of course, he did.
