Today it is Halloween.
This is probably more of a new tradition to our little country and many people moan their tits off about it. I am of the opinion of what harm does it do. I have a basket of lollies in case trick or treaters come knocking on our door. If no one arrives then I guess we will be well stocked in the lolly department for the weekend so nothing is lost. Sure it is a Tradition from the Northern Hemisphere and just another gimmicky thing for the retailers to hook into, but it is fun if you want to join in, and who doesn't like to dress up? No harm is done and you do not have to spend a fortune, a few bucks gets you some lollies!! If it ever gets to be a really big thing in NZ then believe me I shall be that scary woman that dresses up and scares the beejazus out of kids that come knocking on our door. Mwahahahahahaha!!!!
Thirteen years ago I took Max and Jak with this motley crew out trick or treating around a posh part of town not far from where we live. While all the other mums were sitting around chatting and drinking I went with off the little kids. Jak was 6 so Max would have been 8 1/2. It was really good fun, and the kids got all sorts of treats, even Oranges, which they politely thanked the adults for.
My boys still remember that night.
Late this afternoon my good friend Annette
came around with her three gorgeous little grand kids.
My paper bags containing treats.
My little tricksters pretty tickled with their bags of goodies.
This little Mister played a good trick on me with one of those kids kaleidoscopes that had black stuff on the eye piece!!! See all good fun, didn't hurt a bit, and to see little faces smile was so sweet.
(with a grin)
And plenty or treats for door knockers or for us!!
Roll on Guy Fawkes,
that is next weekend!!!
TOF loves to buy the big bangers!
Now where is my BLACK cat?
I know some people already think I am a WITCH
(or is that a Bitch?)
Might go park my broom at the front door too!!
Have a great weekend!!!!!
