All Hallows Eve is approaching. You know what that means?
Costumes. Ghost stories. Candy. And more candy.
For the past several weeks homes and businesses have been decorating for the big evening celebration. Stores have sold candy by the bucket. Much of it in little packages which will be dropped into plastic pumpkins, or plastic bags, or the basket portion of a costume. Smart parents will walk with their children, waiting while they climb the steps where the porch light is on and right the doorbell.
Have you practiced what to say? Do you tell a joke? Sing a jingle? Recite a line that fits your costume?
Then there’s the spooky part of the celebration.
Are these underfed fellows getting ready to come after your candy?
