What a quiet Halloween
I am not sure how things are going in your neck of the woods, but where I am here in Ontario we barely had any trick or treaters. It seems like as each year goes by, less and less children are coming to knock on the door for treats!

Yet... more young families now live in our neighbourhood... YES, now we are in a politically correct location where the children were not allowed to dress up in costume at school, because of possible inappropriate attire, so now only ORANGE and BLACK clothes are allowed on Halloween... but still, what gives?

We used to go through 7-10 BIG boxes of chocolate bars, chips, candy.. and this year 1!!


Have we really lost the spirit of Halloween?? Are children brought up in such big bubbles that it is feared they go out to eat some horribly bad for you, but oh so good candy?

Halloween was THE BEST TIME OF YEAR, back in my day. I don't get it!

It is really annoying, first no Christmas Concerts at the schools, only "Winter Concerts", then no Halloween, just "Orange and Black Day", what will be next?

At least I have boxes of candies to enjoy with our family for a good year now.

Don't get me wrong, I know that a lot of States were affected by the hurricane, so of course I wouldn't be expecting Halloween to be a priority, but for every where else?

On CBC, they were quoted saying the average Canadian Family this year will spend about $330 for Hallooween, including Candy, Decorations and Costumes!

Re: What a quiet Halloween
There seems to be a trend the last decade that everyone takes their kids to malls and trick or treats with retailers.

It seemed it started going downhill back in the day when people were finding razor blades in apples, and they've become more and more distrustful since.

It was a really huge deal when I was a kid too, up to 200 one year, a constant stream coming to the door, not any more.

I have to admit, long ago..... there was a year I would go out with some others whipping eggs at car wind shields that were parked in the drive ways.. once I was too old to go out for candy..

I can just imagine how hard it was to scrape off that crap. If I saw some bugger doing that now, I would high tale it after them loll.

All Souls night 31st Oct .get ready now for the year ahead
All Souls night 31st Oct is on it way,

I want to pass on many generation of knowing here,

The veils will thin between the spirit world and here on All Souls night 31st Oct,

All our loved ones will roam the earth on this night,

sudden deaths, sucide and loved one that want to stay around will be given a chance to to to the light and slip through the veil to the spirit world on All Souls night 31st Oct.

Halloween is whats its called now, then it was hallow eve.

We always light a candle in our windows to guide the souls home, saying now is your time to go to the light.

This has happened in ireland for hundred's of years,

The catholic's robbed it and turned into their stuff.

My great great grand mother said [passed on info}they started to put the candle into HOLLOWED out turnips.

When they arrived in america the new world the couldn'd find turnips. so the next best thing was a pumpin.

So halloween started.


May our loved ones find the light to guide them home....................................................

I believe this is the day that the veil is thin also! There are loved ones, that I still think are around, whom I wish would go and rest their wary heads. They seem to like to hang around here more often than I wish and my children ask why they won't leave them alone too!

Luckily, my children are in bed from a good walk around the neighbourhood and minimal candy. Now it is time to relax at the fire with a glass of wine and a few Coffee Crisps !

When I was a little kid I'd get a 25 cent rubber mask and go around with my little buddies each of us with a paper super market bag saying trick or treat and all the adults would toss candy in your bags. You could see the happiness and love in the widows eyes handing it. Even grouchy old guys wearing wife beaters and chopping cigars would do the same. Not with mommy love but with duty as if they were teaching us a lesson about adults taking care of those in our society.

Now society is so full of porn and insane predatory movies and TV shows that it isn't safe for little kids to go out on their own.

Here in the 'Bible Belt'; it's Church Wednesday.
Every Church we passed on the way home from work ( 6 ) all had activities going on outside.
Beautiful, unseasonably warm.
Big yellow Moon.
The youngster said angrily " If our founding Fathers could see what is going on, they would roll over in their graves!"
The Ol'Timer shook his head and smiled. " No, they would be grabbing their guns".

To be honest, I don't think I would let my children ever go out on their own for Halloween, not like we did back in the day. I am always present standing at the end of the stair case, or near the entrance, thanking the people and talking with them. Sadly my trust level went to near 0 when I was 12. But I stick with the same neighbourhood, speak with the same adults and I know I could hunt down any one of them if I had to.

SOunds beautiful!

Even though it is raining here, my little man was insistent that CAPTAIN AMERICA could with stand rain and my daughter who chose to be a racoon said they are used to this weather. So out we went. All the other children that were out trick or treating were dressed appropriately or had their parents following suit with umbrellas in hand!
