#37 Thursday Thoughts: Do You Celebrate Halloween?

When I was younger I used to hate dressing up, but I loved going trick or treating! What about you? What is Halloween like for you where you live?

  1. Growing up in England in the late 60s and early 70s, Halloween wasn’t a big thing. When I came to Canada, I loved the idea of trick-or-treating because it was something I had never heard of.

    These days, I love to dress up for Halloween. Not being in the office the last couple of years has put a damper on that!

  2. Halloween was a blast when I was a kid! My brother, two years older and a foot taller, would put on one of Mother’s old dresses and I would put on one of Dad’s overalls; we’d smear makeup on our faces so we could not be recognized and proceeded to trick or treat with PILLOW CASES! Once they were full, we’d head home, exchange outfits and head out AGAIN, filling the case a second time! Mother usually would tell us that was enough as we looked at the PILE of candy covering the dining table!
    How did my brother and I not gain 50 pounds (25kg) every year!? Mother would dole out the candy and later we began to realize we NEVER ate everything we had collected. Some of it was given to some poorer folks in our church, some to hospitals, etc. But we were always blessed with enough to keep our sweet “tooths” sated till next October. 😁

  3. πŸ’œ I AM a Stickler EveryOne; ergo, I THINK!!! there should be an ‘All Hallows Day’ (“Halloween” Day) on November 1st EveryBody just like The Day after Every Other ‘Eve’ in The Year

    …πŸ’›πŸ’šπŸ’™…

  4. Love it! I’ve got pumpkin spice on everything (except coffee), and have multiple hat’s for costumes, and can’t wait to hand out candy. That’s the best part of the day.

  5. I enjoy dressing up. I have dressed in many costumes through the years and attended many Halloween parties, although last year I wasn’t into it. Such is 2020. Not sure about this year. Costume or no costume, I will pass out candy.

  6. Thank you for sharing!!.. I grew up on a farm so Halloween was about listening to scary shows on the radio, as years passed it was about my kids and trick or treating… last year I turned the lights down low and with a glass of wine read “The Hound of The Baskervilles” while listening to Yanni… this year I think it will be a cuppa of Earl Grey and reading Agatha Christie while listening to Celtic Woman….. πŸ™‚

    Until we meet again..
    May your day be touched
    by a bit of Irish luck,
    Brightened by a song
    in your heart,
    And warmed by the smiles
    of people you love.
    (Irish Saying)

  7. Let the enter kid come out and play, I might suggest you push the candy away or! and though I would never think of being unkind, there will be a lot more of you the next time. (Happy face)

  8. When you build In scary themed Scooby Doo and Muppet movies, the rest of the day just has to work. Best but for Hawklad is an evening drive round the villages to see the pumpkins and what Halloween stuff is going on. This time I couldn’t fail to chuckle at being waved at my a toddler covered in a white sheet, not often you get waved at by a ghost.
