Can you believe it? Halloween is right around the corner! Incredible, I know. And when you think Halloween, you think ghosts, ghouls, and gremlins, right?
I think back to my childhood, trick or treating in a small town. Or, of hauling my own kids up and down the street for hours. Usually after I’ve spent hours selecting or creating costumes. Then, getting them all dressed up, only to later tell them to ‘take it easy’ on the humongous bowl of candy they’d scored.
Of course, there were always neighborhood parties, and one every year downtown where all the main street businesses pitched in making it outstanding fun for everyone, kids and grown-ups alike!
Yeah, those were the good times.
Then there was the day my beautiful little Disney Princess showed up dressed like Bloody Mary.
Yeah, times have changed. Instead of midnight Frankenstein and Dracula movies, we’ve moved passed Michael Jackson’s Thriller Video and into The Saw, Scream and such horror films limited only by the human imagination and computer animation.
So, what’s your idea of Halloween fun? Scary movies old and new? Watching kids dressed up as comic book heroes and Hollywood Icons? Or, maybe it’s getting out your favorite picture album and reminiscing about all the Halloweens you and your family have enjoyed over the years.
My favorite Halloween show? Easy, It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown! will always be the best.
Have a great time everyone. If you get the chance, come share your fun stories and pic’s!
