The Halloween Mask

Halloween should be a fun and fun time, and for some children it is, and so they like the trick-or-treating, the matches and also the parties, but for me personally October 31st was a time of the season I didn’t look ahead.

Growing up on the farm, where the houses were far apart, trickortreating supposed long drives between houses and getting into and outside of the vehicle, frequently on chilly and rainy nights. The costume I wore of a skeleton was a hand-me-down in one of my cousins and also the skeleton mask appeared old and musty. Halloween was never my favourite holiday.

I did like town garage sale that town cheap halloween costumes (which was 20 minutes’ drive) put on annually, on the Saturday before Halloween to raise money because of what had been important and needed that year. From the a year ago, the money raised went to a household with a boy that had disabilities. I’d consistently possess the stand attempting to sell the popcorn because my mother made the best lemonade and I’d consistently sell out before the afternoon was finished.

I have to admit I have warmed to the Halloween holiday now I have children (a boy and a woman ) of my own. I now live in the suburbs and my wife and I shoot the kiddies trickortreating around our neighbourhood. Everyone yearns their homes and it turns into a real social event meeting with your neighbors that you do not live next to and also the children come home with a bag full of candy.

My daughter wears out a ballerina costume because she says she looks like a princess, as well as my son carries a policeman uniform – I think he will join the police when he is old . Every year we ask them what they are going to wear and ever year it never changes, a ballerina and a policeman.

Every Halloween I watch my kids having a good time and enjoying themselves, and think back on the occasions of the Halloween times. Was it because I had been an only child that I did not delight in the trickortreating, a brother or sister could have made it more fun, but I still think it was that Halloween mask. The smell of this mask still remains with me for the day – funny how you can find some things that you never forget.
