I always wanted to be a Witch!
I begged and begged for this mask. I got my way the year was 1977. I wore my mother's dress and reddish wig. I'd have to say this was my favorite costume as a child. Witch fits me well even today.
I volunteered in my son's class today. Fun Halloween Party! Lots of kids out sick and my youngest and oldest have the flu. We may have to trick or treat at home this year.
When I was young tonight was known as Devil's Night. I'm not sure if kids still go out and toilet paper trees, egg cars and play ding dong dooeee. A favorite memory I have is one of my father. He really got into Devils Night. Not playing pranks but protecting our home. He would sit in our front yard which was full of pines. This made us an ideal target for tp. He would sit in the dark and sneak up on kids. He'd say in a low scary voice "I wouldn't do that if I were you". Sometimes he would us the hose and spray kids with water. So if any of you are planning some Devil's Night pranks keep that in mind!
Wishing everyone a safe and spooky Devil's Night! Don't get into too much trouble!
