The Scariest Halloween Ever

I have lived through 56 Halloweens. I don't remember the first few but I remember most of them after that because Halloween is one of my favorite holidays, always has been. It's right up there with Christmas...not quite but almost. There were a few years between the time that I was grown up and the time that my son was born that there were some Halloweens that weren't too exciting but I still remember them. I used to love answering the door and handing out the candy, watching the kids in their cute and scary costumes get their candy and scurry away with a big ol' grin on their faces like they just hit the jackpot. When my son came along I had just as much fun with him at Halloween as I did when I was a kid. He loved Halloween too...still does as a matter of fact. He would always have an elaborate costume and come home with 2 or 3 bags full of candy. Of course it was an unwritten rule that I got the Butterfingers and the Tootsie Rolls. He could have everything else but those were mine, mine, mine. He didn't care, he got so much candy that he was still eating it at Christmas. We would always decorate the house so every room had Halloween decorations. We just loved it. Those were good times...real good times.

Of course now that my son has grown up and moved away Halloween isn't as much fun as it used to be. We don't get any trick or treaters here where we live now so there is no answering the door and handing out candy. That's not what made this Halloween the scariest one ever though, not by a long shot. The scary part of this Halloween was the fact that we had about 6 inches of SNOW on the ground. I mean, really??? What's that all about? I can remember walking with my son on Halloween and it being 75 degrees outside. SNOW...seriously??? I hate snow in January, much less in October. I suppose that people who live up north are used to this but not this southern girl. I used to make sure my son's Halloween costume was large enough to wear a light jacket underneath, not a winter coat, snow boots and mittens. I mean SNOW...are you kidding me??? Now that's some scary stuff.

PS...Just so you know and can prepare yourself...this will NOT be the last time you read me ranting and raving over snow...I hate it. Signed...Someone who needs to move to a warmer climate...

Jackie, Jackie, Jackie... LOL! You sound like me... when Dad retired from the USAF, we were leaving Idaho... June 1st... it was SNOWING! Unreal. I hate snow. Always have. I was born in Texas & lived 5 of my first 8 years at Beale AFB, CA. My parents took us to the mtns in CA to see snow... I complained I was cold & wanted to go home. I am totally with you. And if we get snow again this winter, I will be right up there with you in ranting about how I should never have to deal with the white stuff in TEXAS! LOL ;)

hahaha..... should I tell you that we had beautiful temps in the 80's on Halloween? You need to come live here in Vegas!! lol

I love Halloween......... we had so many trick or treaters here that even the huge stash of candy that I had bought wasn't enough! I ended up handing out gum and energy bars near the end! I'll have to remember to buy more next year!!

I grew up in NORTHERN NYS, just south of Montreal. I do not like snow, ice, cold weather. Had enough of it!! ;D

PS I don't mind looking at it, just don't want to be in it!

Great Blog! I don't like the snow either and thank goodness we don't have a lot of it in Georgia where I live

I'm a fan of no snow also, but unfortunately we had the White Halloween as you did.
Many cities/towns canceled Halloween or postponed it to tomorrow night, Friday, Sat and Sunday.

The odd thing is on Christmas it'll probably be 70 degrees outside, lol...
