10.17.14 = Flashback Friday - Halloweens Past
A clown, a witch, a bunny and Snoopy. We all have the great memories of Halloween night. We spent weeks and weeks deciding on our costumes and the anticipation of that one wonderful night that you got to dress up and beg for candy. Living in the Midwest, I can remember some very cold, rainy, and some warm Halloween nights. All the houses on the street were glowing with a warm light. The smell of the damp rustling leaves, as we ran from house to house. And the reward; getting home and dumping your bags out on the floor and admiring your accomplishments. And let's not forget the bartering and trading; "I'll trade you my orange Tootsie Pop for your cherry." Truly a magical night!
"Backward, turn backward,
O Time, in your flight,
Make me a child again
just for to-night!" ~Elizabeth Akers Allen
