I can’t say that Halloween was the same as when I was a kid, I guess it was because I grew up in the city, not knowing much about Halloween and had never gone trick or treating. In fact, Halloween was something that I didn’t look forward to, I dreaded going to school on that day, and had to hurry home because I didn’t want to get hit by eggs. I took the subway home, and the walk from the subway station to our apartment was like a war zone, kids would be up on the rooftop of a 4 to 6 story apartment buildings throwing eggs down to passerby, I had to run fast to be able to dodge the egg bombs.
I’m happy to say that it’s not like that anymore, especially for Lee. We live in a small town now, and our neighborhood is very safe and we’ve a huge turn out every year, kind of surprised me that we seemed to have more this year than last year, even though it rained part of the night, but people didn’t mind coming out at all.
Lee was dressed up as Princess Jasmine, a fictional Arab princess and the heroine of the 1992 Disney film Aladdin.
I was surprised to see several adults dressing up to give out candies, this lady was dressed up as the Chick-fil-A Cow.
My camera didn’t do too good with night shot, also might be that I don’t have a steady hand.
Some neat and cute customs.
Bo was running out of candies fast, he went through our pantry and gave out anything that he could find, cool aid, animal crackers, potato ships, popcorn…
Believe it or not, I got a hot dog, there was a block party and they gave out hot dogs and sodas last year, but only hot dog this year.
We had people from other neighborhood dropping off their kids, I guess they were neighborhood hopping, something that we had never done before, just our neighborhood alone is about 1 to 2 miles walk.
