Thought you all might enjoy this site where I found some
great facts about Halloween that I never knew before
like …WHY ORANGE AND BLACK ARE COLORS OF
HALLOWEEN??? or TOOTSIE ROLLS were the
first wrapped penny candy in AMERICA. or why
Halloween is on October 31st??
Some stores here still let their employees dress up
for Halloween. The banks and the grocery stores.
I love the looks on the kids faces when they see
them doing their normal jobs all made up and
sometimes scary looking. Malls and department stores
also have treats for kids who drop by. Most kids
take advantage of the parties that are especially for
them at schools and churches with games and prizes
and snacks included. This is what is going on in our
town. Some streets there are no lights on for kids
to "trick or treat" ours is one of them. I fondly remember
the days of kids coming up the walk with their
parents and holding out their bags and just wondering
what the heck to do. The art of the holiday is somehow
changed now and the traditions are lost to many.
Whatever your night’s plans I hope you have fun!!
We are off to see a diet counselor today to get a diet for mom’s
kidney problems. I am just hoping it is not too hard to follow. She has
already been on a strict diet so maybe if we are lucky there will be
more things that she is allowed to have.
I DID MOW the yard for one last time today (Cindy) and it sure
did need it. It looks really nice and free of leaves for the time
being. Cleaned up the mower and pulled out the dreaded
snow thrower and will get some fresh cheap gas tomorrow
to get it ready for what is to eventually come.
HOPE YOU ALL HAVE A SAFE AND SCARY
