So how was your Halloween?
Ours was exhausting.
The couple we bought our home from had old couple that had a tradition. They passed out small Dixie cups of boxed wine to parents in the neighborhood. We continued the tradition, but it being the first year, we were very careful which adults got wine:
1) You had to be from our neighborhood.
2) You had to be a parent.
3) You child needed to be in costume.
4) You needed to be 21 years of age or older.
For everyone else, they got a box of raisins and encouragement to go home and make their own.
But dear God! The children.
On the old street we were lucky to get one or two trick or treaters. Here we had HUNDREDS. Literally, they swarmed. And they have a parade first. Unlike anything I have seen in Baltimore before.
We must have had 100 little girls dressed as someone from Frozen. And one Little Boy dressed as Belle from Beauty and the Beast. His bespectacled Mommy stated "Aiden is breaking gender barriers." No. Aiden is Belle. You are projecting the gender barrier thing.
Anyhow, its time we scream into Thanksgiving.
