Halloween Through The Years

October 30, 2021,

I've always enjoyed Halloween as a child unless I was sick.  Although I've made myself sick from eating too much Halloween candy other years.   

Later as adults, my hubby and I dressed up and had  fun.  One year Bernie dressed up as a gorilla and couldn't see out of his mask so I drove.  I covered myself with green grease paint and went as Mrs. Jolly Green Giant. What a mess!  We were headed to a party when we decided to stop by the police station where a good friend was on duty.  As I drove he would turn and wave to people in the other cars. I could hear the children screaming and laughing at the Gorilla.  We walked into the police station and the lady sitting at the desk said, "Uh Oh!"  She called our friend and everyone had a good laugh.

Another time we dressed up as babies and went to a party.  Someone was dressed as a Priest and I kept following him around calling, "Daddy, daddy!"  I had a pacifier hanging around my neck and offered people sucks.  I was surprised how many accepted 😱





One year we went trick or treating in our neighborhood holding wine glasses instead of candy bags.  Not a good idea to walk and drink.  I had a baaad hangover and tried to fly home instead of walk. 


I don't remember what I was supposed to be this year but the costume was fun.  


Bernie dressed as a Mummy here and was a big hit. 
Have any of you had some memorable Halloween's? If so I'd love to know what they were.

Thank you for reading and replying if it felt right for you to.

I remember as kids my sisters & I would walk around the nearby subdivision and get big pillow cases full of a great variety of treats which would last for at least a month later. It was fun and people were friendly and generous on Halloween. I enjoyed it alot. Now I enjoy relaxing at home and watching (not too scary) witchy movies.

Oh this was fun to read except for the pacifier comment! Ugh! Definitely pre-covid! But I loved seeing all your costumes--especially like your red feathered headdress.<3
