It is that time of the year again.. Halloween.. I'm not as a big a fan as I used to be.. What has happened exactly I'm not sure.. When I was little obviously I would dress up, but I can't even really remember what costumes I had.. I think one year I was Casper.. I'm sure at some point I was some super hero, maybe Superman, but honestly I have no idea.. As I got older, it became less about the costumes and the candy and more about the egging and shaving creaming. Stink bombs in the mailbox, egging kids on the street and getting into huge shaving cream fights.. THAT was Halloween..
But then the crackdown came.. Police cars patrolling neighborhoods on Halloween to make sure no ruffians were about (Thank you O'Banion).. And then I guess if I couldn't go egging or shaving creaming, then there was no point and Halloween became just another day on the calendar.
Fast forward a few years and I am out taking the Twinado trick or treating by myself. To be honest, they were pretty good.. They said trick or treat and thank you to almost every house.. I was pretty proud of them.. I was also pretty cold.. Wearing gloves and earmuffs? I mean, it is the first week of November right? But I see that the boys were all into people's costumes, calling out who kids were and what they were wearing. When we got home Max decided he was going to hand out all the candy to the kids who came to the door. I really didn't have to do anything. It was kinda nice.
Maybe I should get more into it next year. They'll be 5 and we can get really creative with their costumes.. Maybe I'll even break out the white sheet and bust out the old Casper costume for old times sake.
