October 31st is Halloween. This is a fun time for kids to go knocking on doors and saying trick or treat. It used to be you could say, what's your trick? These days kids look at you as if you are crazy so most people just hold a bowl full of candy out and let them dig in.
Last year I don't know what possessed me, but when one group of kids said, "Trick or Treat," I asked, "What's your trick?" I had to laugh because one little girl laid down and rolled around. Actually, I didn't laugh at the time because I didn't want to hurt her feelings. Instead, I said what a great trick.
Halloween is a fun time for children to go door to door doing trick and gathering candy to take home and enjoy. Unfortunately, there are dangers out there, so I'm hoping the adults will join in the fun and escort the kids around the neighborhoods.
Even the older kids need to be careful and stay in groups. Enjoy!
Have a great week, and I'll see you next Sunday.
