It has come to my thought about Halloween. The fun of going door to door saying “trick or treat” and get candy happened when I was a child for a few years. Even at age 17, with my 16 year old friend BLM, and her nephew, we went out door to door saying “trick or treat”. It was fun and that was the last time I went out. BLM and I went out trick and treating on Halloween night with her nephew that year in 1987 who was a toddler who understood what Halloween was all about. We took him. My sister dressed up as well but was yet too young to go out door to door. The idea of her going out in the dark with me was not a great idea.
Today, being age 17 years old no longer, trick or treating no longer is necessary or even a want. I am now 43 years old and life has changed so much since I was a teenager and my belief in Halloween has totally changed. I live in a building where no kids come in and knock at doors for candy. It is not like it used to be – fun. It’s not fun anymore. To be very honest, dressing up and going out to door to door getting candy from neighbors is really a holiday that should not be celebrated. All Hallow’s Eve is honoring the dead and the spirits of evil and Satan’s side. I will look it up sometime tomorrow after I get back from Bible study and share what I have found out about what Halloween really means. I did watch a program regarding Halloween and how it originated a few years ago but it has been a while since I have done some real research outside the Bible reading and studying, and going to church lately. It is not easy being me sometimes.
This weather has been a downer lately. Because it is now autumn and winter is not that far around the corner, I have been a little down. It has been kind of cloudy and yucky outdoors and the sun has been shining very little the past couple of days. I will get past the yucky feeling state soon. I am busy every day these days. Even tomorrow I am going to have some company outside my shower gal coming at 10:30 am, and maybe I will see my best friend RS with her dog after her mom leaves. The weather has been one of those downers for me is all.
