Tradition out the window

Halloween-Hero-1-A

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 🙂

Halloween

As the holidays are approaching rapidly I’m pulled to one of my favorite holidays, which is Halloween. I love it! The ghouls and goblins come out and it’s just a downright scary holiday. I love scary anything so this fits me to a T. My favorite genre of film is horror/science fiction. Stephen King is my favorite author so I can’t go wrong there. Last night I went on to Netflix and was excited to finally see Gerald’s Game was out so I immediately turned it on. Let me tell you, don’t watch this flick by yourself. After it was over I went outside to let my dogs out and I was scared shitless! I literally freaked myself out and ran back in the house hahaa it was pretty hilarious. So if you haven’t seen that then I recommend you watch it. I also since I’m a huge fan of the King I decided to watch the series The Mist. I have seen the movie but I was intrigued with what the series held. I turned it on and it was so different, different I mean then the movie. Of course the CGI was a lot better but I wasn’t all that impressed with the acting skills in that show. I will continue to watch it however because I only watched one episode and I was kind of stoked because the woman from the Vikings is in it.

So besides the movies and the television shows, there are books. I love horror novels as well. They give me a type of thrill and rush, especially Stephen King’s. So being that it is Halloween I recommend picking up a good thrilling novel. I just read Black Magick by an acquaintance of mine and I couldn’t put it down. It was thrilling and scary and it had just the right amount of evil in it. Whether you celebrate Halloween or not you can still enjoy a good spooky novel.
