I know the second you start reading this you’ll know I’m old as dirt. Because of that, I might as well start with BACK IN MY DAY…
So… back in MY day, Trick-or-Treat night was always on Halloween — October 31st. I remember years it was so hot that I’d sweat behind that plastic pirate mask — and years it was so cold that the princess wore a winter coat that hid her costume. And yes, there were years it would actually rain.
I guess we were just tough back then (or stupid) because around here, the topic of concern on Facebook is rescheduling Halloween to November 2nd because it’s supposed to rain and be chilly. Some local communities have already rescheduled while others have yet to make a decision. Safety first!
Obviously, parents back in MY day didn’t care about safety! They put us out on the street with masks that you could barely see out of and no one left home until it was DARK! Now, ghouls and goblins start at 6:00 PM and are home by 8:00 PM. (Sunset is around 7:00 PM.)
I wouldn’t care except for the fact that Gracie already has her John Belushi (Blues Brothers) costume.
