It’s That Time Again

IMG_0298

Today is Halloween in my part of the world.  It happens every year on the 31st of October.  I have mixed feelings on this day.  Some even call it a holiday now although I’ve always had to work at regular wages and we never got that day off.  But that’s OK, we all have things we love and that makes us – us.

The only things I don’t like about Halloween is that there has become an increase of blood and death and terror.  We had a house on the main road that set up a life- sized pentagram in their yard with a life sized human body on it…….scared the kids on the school bus each day as it passed by.  And when a co-worker of mine stopped by this house after his shift one year (they were relatives) he passed out and died in the front yard.  I’m not saying there was a connection – he did have a type of aneurism but one’s mind could wander and wonder.  They didn’t set it up the next year.

And now, since I’ve lived in the mid-west, I have managed to live on streets where absolutely no trick or treat -ers come by.  Where are they?  So I stopped buying candy a few years ago – I eat it all if no one comes.  It is kind of sad.

But I will watch some sifi show tonight or read a good book and crave Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups.  The rest of you – stay safe and have some pure innocent fun!

Here is a song that tends to creep me out!

Enjoy!

  1. Blame society, we ALL allow this tragic stuff to happen right?

    In Scotland we dress the kids up, if ANYONE put a dead person lookalike in a garden it would get stolen and sold for drugs 😀

    It’s for the kids… lol
    Hope you enjoyed your Sci-fi show and Peanut butter..

    Shaun 😀

  2. i used to have trick or treating in my apartment block when the children were younger and that was fun. most of us do not live in houses, so no huge decorations of scary objects and going around the neighbourhood for treats. themed parties are usually held in discos in town where they really do get dressed up. i’m sorry to hear the man passed on like that.

    1. Yes, it was sad when he passed – especially there.
      I like the simpler ways – I think in an apartment complex or building would be fun and not as scary. It is for FUN and the kids love it. 😀
