In case you're wondering, yes there is a snowsuit underneath my costume. That's how we roll in Canada. I always remember Halloween being so freezing cold, and how annoying it would be to have to find a suitable warm costume. I loved it though. Halloween seems so different now. I'm not sure if it's just me, but doesn't it seem like kids just aren't enjoying it as much as we used to?
I can remember trick-or-treating being such a huge deal... something that you prepared for and mapped out the best streets to hit for the best candy. We would stay out for hours, filling our pillowcases to the rim with goodies, until our feet were just too sore to continue.
Sometimes, we even had parents drive us around to different neighborhoods. The next day at school was always so much fun... bragging about how much candy you scored and having your mom pop a few little chocolate bars into your lunch every day following Halloween.
Over the years, I haven't seen this kind of enthusiasm from today's kids. Back in my day, the streets were packed with children running all over the place. Now, we're lucky to get more than twenty trick-or-treaters, and they all seem to stop at about 7:30pm.
Where is the spirit!? I can't wait until I have kids and am able to take them out. Darn right we'll hit every single house, and stay out until their little toes are frozen!
Am I the only one who has noticed this, or is it common nowadays for trick-or-treating to be less fun?
Either way, I wish you all the best and most fun Halloween yet!
