Reason why I like October #2: Halloween


I still love Halloween. Especially the memories: 3 little sisters dressed as pumpkins for the Halloween parade, trick-or-treating in "town" and going to all the houses (even to people we didn't know), visiting both sets of Grandparents while we made the rounds in their neighborhoods, stopping at the neighbor's house to sit by their fire and sample a tiny taste of their homemade pear wine, acquiring a whole paper grocery bag full of candy each.
Even at my age, I still like to dress up in costume. I like to go into "town" and hand out candy to little kids. If we can't do that, then I like to have a wiener roast and then watch a scary movie. I like to pretend. I like to feel a cool breeze on a completely dark night. I like to remember.....

What nice October memories.Do you have any pictures of you dressed in costume? Most of my late October memories include rainy days and nights not fit for evenings outdoors without rain gear, yet this time of the year is my favorite.

Oh I would love to see costume pictures also! Halloween is a fun time. I've always loved it.
The little cutie card is adorable.
