I have always loved Halloween. A hundred years or so ago, kids went trick-or-treating with a group of friends. Parents were off limits. We would leave, gather as much candy as we could, and then go home again, tired and happy, already full of candy.
I’m still fascinated by people’s creativity – both in kids’ costumes and in carving of pumpkins. Since we live on top of a ridgeline, some 650+ feet up a steep driveway from the road, we don’t have trick or treaters. I still enjoy the holiday.
