Halloween

We've done some decorating for fall, although (with the air conditioner running some afternoons) it doesn't feel like it. Around our neighborhood, there's some question as to whether the trick-or-treating is going to happen on Saturday or Sunday. (Yes, we're about to reach the end of October already). Actually, I don't know when to expect it, if at all. For instance, many churches, neighborhoods, and other groups are holding "trunk or treat" at various times this month.

Then, there's also the big question. What if the doorbell rings at a critical point in the Cowboy game, which is scheduled for that Sunday evening? I'll be interested to hear how you plan to handle it.

We kinda live in the boonies. When you only expect 2-8 kids the whole night, there is little chance that the doorbell will ring at a critical moment.:-)

But do you expect them Saturday, Sunday, or not at all?

We expect 2-8 kids on Sunday. Another time when the 31st fell on a Sunday, the kids trick-or-treated on Saturday (via a town council decision), but folks were irritated by it.

Our city council voted to keep Halloween on Sunday, said the last time they changed it everyone got mad. lol. I usually have about twenty kids to show up, but it's supposed to be raining Sunday night, so I don't know if we'll have any. I hope you don't have any interruptions during a critical play...or bad referee call. lol

I keep remembering how much innocent fun I had on Halloween when I was a kid...I hope kids still have that kind of fun.

Patricia, I told my wife recently that the Halloween we remember is dead--don't know if it died in the pandemic or if the current administration killed it, but it's gone. We'll see.
