Going Out For A Spell

Tick, Or Treat

Photograph copyright: DAVID McMAHON


This was the best-dressed witch we saw today. She had an amazing cape and hat and she could barely believe how many lollies (candy, to my US and Canadian readers) she had collected. Was she going to eat them all? No, is the short answer. She doesn't really have a sweet tooth. But it was just the fun of rocking up to a stranger's front door and uttering the age-old Halloween refrain ``Trick or treat''. You know what they say - ghouls just wanna have fun.

It's weird...we don't go trick or treating for another few hours. I have a football player, Darth Vader, a snow-boarder, and a princess ballerina, all costumes that will keep them warm in our 50 degree (F) temps.!

You have amazing costumes over there. I've been amazed to see all the photos. It's less of a deal here in UK.

Groan. I love your puns. And your photos. We are waiting for the trickortreaters here now. Kids are are a mysterious gift we treasure.

I'll be so glad when today is over. Maybe I could pretend I was in Australia, and it would be! :-)

That’s a neat looking witch’s outfit. Is Halloween already over down under and November now begun?

Very nice witch!
I loved Halloween in our tiny corner of the woods on the edge of Washington, DC. We'd sit in our front and have a "Silent Dinner" with the neighbours and watch the little kids and not so little teens come by and collect their just rewards. When our kids would come home from trick and treating, they would dump their loot on the floor of the living room and sort and divide the candy into neat little stacks, before the put it away in their little plastic pumpkins. For a couple of days they would get one candy each aftr dinner, and then the whole sugar high would fade off and the stash in the closet forgotten.

Good pun there. I groaned because I didn't see it coming.

Not to be confused with Lolly's, which in the US is a place to buy adverbs.
