So last night was Halloween. It’s a tradition where many kids go out trick or treating and get candy from neighbors in usually their neighborhoods. I feel like the tradition is starting to die off. I’ve been living in my house for about 6 years now and I feel like every year the kids are coming less and less. Granted I did live on this street my whole life because it’s where my parents also live so I can tell you the kids coming around has definitely died down.
Last night I had a total of about 15 kids. I’m like where are all the kids? My husband and I are both sitting outside, cold as anything, waiting for kids to come. They would come but in a little group and that would be it for awhile. By 8:00, we decided to call it quits because they stopped coming. I took a walk around the neighborhood with the dog and I saw tons of kids so maybe it was just because of the street I live on.
So what is going on today with Halloween? Are kids not coming around because they feel it’s stupid, are parents more cautious these days, or is it just a dying tradition? Last night one of my cousins said they found a razor blade in one of their candies. I’m thinking what the hell is wrong with people!!?? This was in my neighborhood, people are nuts! They want to harm an innocent child. I’ll never understand people sometimes.
Anyways I didn’t mean to vent all that but I am just wondering what your thoughts are? Is Halloween dying off? I mean I love Halloween. I love to decorate and I love all the scary movies that come with it. I mean come on one of my favorite movies is Halloween!
So now I have all this candy at home sitting in a bowl. I guess that won’t go to waste, especially with the Reese’s PB cups 🙂
