This is one of my easiest days to do. This was trick-or-treat night for our town tonight and just like my mom used to do, I love seeing all the little ones dressed up in celebration of the holiday. My boyfriend and I live in an apartment building that does not get many kids, so we helped my dad out tonight. He has trouble getting up and down to keep answering the door, so we went to answer his door and hand our treats.
A pretty good year for him… he ended up with 32 costumed kids, a handful of costumed parents and 3 sorority sisters looking for food bank donations. By far super heroes ruled the night. We saw multiple Batman, Ironman and Superman show up. Star Wars as always was represented. But I feel the winner of the night was an adorable little boy who had a magician’s costume on. He had matching sequined vest, hat band and wand; top hat and suit…he couldn’t have been more than 4 or 5 years old.
As usual though you can never guess how much candy to buy. I remember years with nice weather nearing the 100s of children and cold years with next to no one. This year was a beautiful upper 60s with mostly cloudy skies. But we still over estimated and now there is left over candy as we will never be caught running out. Some how I will suffer through a little chocolate to help dad get rid of the rest. LOL!
