Halloween sure isnt the same
Anyone remember Halloween the way it used to be - we used to go just between two cross roads like lets say Verdun and Bannantyne and go up and down each street - when my son was 5 and my daughter 2 I took them out - ground floor 2nd floor 3rd floor carrying my daughter in her snow suit so that the big boys like 12 years old running up and down the stairs like they were crazed on sugar - had to carry my daughter or risk her being knocked down the stairs. Now we have had perhaps 15 kids driven door to door by parents - we are on an acreage 2 km outside NW Calgary but seems like the kids are missing out going with their friends door to door - no exercise except hop out of the van at the door and back in again. It is about 8c and no snow so good night for them.
