Halloween magic was evident in my neighborhood today. A parade of continuous costumed-characters made their way down the street from early afternoon to late at night. They came in packs of dozens being ushered along by parents and friends. From little ones to adolescents, smiles were evident that a good time was being had by all.
To prepare for the spookfest, my family readied the inside and outside of our house. A dark candle-lit environment provided the ambiance as my pumpkin candy holder uttered "Happy Halloween" to unsuspecting trick or treaters. Dipping in the pumpkin's head was my treat for young and old. I wished I asked the children if they ever wondered why they say "trick or treat". What a great conversation that would have been but there is always next year.
For now, I can ask you to read Wonderopolis's Wonder of the Day #393, Why Do You Say Trick or Treat, and check out my spooky digitals to end your Halloween night with another smile.
