Put down that candy and reminisce!
The cry is “Trick or Treat” as kids go from door to door collecting goodies in a regular world. It still happened a bit around here although it was recommended not to happen in certain places in the province.
But that’s OK. We’re going back … way back … to the days when you went trick or treating.
For the most part that I can remember, everyone had treats for us. And, when they ran out, they just turned out the lights and we moved on.
I do remember some of the older people in our neighbourhood who tried to have a bit of fun in the process and make it seem like there was a real chance that this would be an “either/or” situation.
What is your trick?
Now, we were prepared. It’s probably not very original but my mom would always give us a partly used bar of soap and our threat was that we would “soap your windows”. I actually don’t recall soaping anyone’s house window but I kind of remember walking alongside a car and help them get ready for a car wash on November 1.
I do remember an older story that involved an outhouse…
How is your memory for this day after Hallowe’en?
- When you went out, were you prepared to trick if you didn’t get any goodies?
- What was the trick that you were packing?
- Have you ever had someone trick your house?
- If you have kids, do you send them out prepared to do a trick?
- What great Hallowe’en tricks have you heard about?
