Halloween's here! The streets are swarming with miniature wolf-men, mario bros, snow whites and hello kitties. This is the first year I've stocked candy while staying in a house instead of an apartment. I estimated three bags of various candy bars and suckers would suffice. It looks like I'll make it through the night without running out and having tricks served back as a penance.
Lucia didn't know why everyone was knocking on the door and getting treats. As the night passed by she grew a little bolder waited by the door to see what other creatures were stopping by. It's only her second Halloween so she's still getting use to all the tiny ghouls and goblins walking through her yard.
Halloween trivia - some say trick or treating started in England during the Middle Ages. During All Hallow's Eve and All Saints Day, children would go door to door and ask for Soul cakes. In exchange for the cakes the children would pray for the souls of those in purgatory. It was thought each prayer released one soul.
