Till Next Year "Piders and Punctions"

The kitty carefully takes the stairs...

Trick or Treating certainly met expectations this year. One of the best things about our neighborhood is the blockclub-organized nighttime trick or treating. The kids are out in swarms with flashlight and glowsticks, running from house to house to get as much trick or treating in as possible. Costume clad neighbors hang out on their porches with large bowls of candy, fire pits and hot chocolate, welcoming the goblins and ghosts. Houses are decorated with pumpkins, gourds, skeletons, spider webs and smoke machines. One house staged a fake accident, complete with sirens blaring from a poice car, another built a haunted house out of cray paper and tarps. Thunder and creepy music was piped into the streets. The Pet (kitty) and a scarecrow only made in down the main drag, but that was enough. A friend commented that it seemed like a scene out of a movie; good old fashioned fun!
