October 26, 2018: Trick-or-Treating

Halloween is just around the corner! As I mentioned before, I enjoy decorating and getting in costume for gatherings. It’s also exciting to see young children go around in their costumes. The only discouraging thing to watch is the act of Trick-or-Treating disappearing. Less and less families come by year after year. It’s truly a sad time when children lose out of this simple joy of collecting treats in costume. Granted, there are Trunk or Treat gatherings that are popping up, but it’s not the same thing. Children need to recapture the joy of exploration on Halloween night. They need to be free to embrace the Halloween spirit.
