Halloween Bust

Nobody seems to enjoy the good old childhood traditions anymore.  Admittedly, we had a less than $10 budget for Halloween this year, but we did trick out the house with candles, organ music, and the smallest jack-o-lantern known to man.  In all fairness, there was a Halloween substitute party at the chapel called "Light the Night," but this neighborhood is crawling with more than enough kids to go around.  We had a grand total of two callers all night, and now we're swimming in an unexpected surplus of Raisinets and Milk Duds.

  1. Get with the program! There is no time to take the children trick-or-treating. The baby-boomer parents are too busy attending their own parties!

  2. Hehe. I used to think it was about psychos who passed out poisoned pretzels, but rumor has it that military bases used to offer the best trick-or-treating in the world. Dave was quite disappointed.
