This is from my Red Hat Halloween Party. I am the pirate with the red striped shirt. We had a good time.
I love dressing up for Halloween. It is fun to play a character!
We used to have great Halloweens where I work. Each department had a theme and would dress accordingly. That sort of fell with the morale. Then we at least decorated our department, then, nothing.
Last time I was the only one in our department in costume. I don't work this year, so who knows if anyone will dress up?
When I was a kid we used to go door to door at night. Our Mom's took us and we even stopped at the neighborhood taverns where many patrons would buy us a full size candy bar! Couldn't do that now!
We filled grocery bags! One house always invited us in for hot chocolate and a rice crispy bar.
Then came the razor blade era and anything that wasn't wrapped was a no no. They also started x-raying the candy. No fun!
When my son was small, we had to push him in his special stroller as he couldn't walk because of the CP. Do you know how many houses have steps? If you don't go to the door, you don't get any candy.
He loved dressing in costume too. I think his favorite to this day was his Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle bodycast that wasn't even Halloween! I don't decorate for Halloween. It was fun when Danny was small.
We will hand out candy, after our trip to the nursing home, the bank and the car repair shop.
