The Halloween Crowd

I’m really not into Halloween, not REALLY. But people get REALLY involved this time of year!

It’s all in fun though. I totally get it. I guess I was turned of from this play-frightful night when teens in my quiet, suburban neighborhood were beating little children w crowbars, and stealing their candy. I know, I know…not everyone operates in a fashion such as this, but it really turned me off from what used to be a fun night! My girls and I would get together and all go out, trick or treating (yes we were in high school lol); most of us had smaller siblings, and were responsible for taking them out (the horror right?) so we really didn’t mind. But once we started hearing the local news reports of the senseless violence, we stopped supporting the day. We were glad that we didn’t fall victim to the terror, and we were actually content w passing OUT candy. I also like the fact the villages are now setting hours FOR trick or treating for the kids. I’m all about the safety of the babies; I will be a Mom one day, and the LAST thing I want to do is rob my Lil darling from any fun due to my own personal fears.

But I challenge everyone to be safe! It’s definitely fun, if fun is done in decency and in order. No one should get hurt! Save some candy for me! ;0)
