Trick or Treat!

The 14thandYous spent a couple of hours on Friday evening handing out candy to the little ghouls and goblins in the neighborhood (actually, it seemed like a lot of football players and people dressed up as "the Scream", but no matter).  Mrs. 14thandYou adopted her alternate personna, the neighborhood witch (as seen below), while Mr. 14thandyou ventured out as himself.  It was difficult to tell who the neighborhood children were frightened of more.

Unfortunately, we didn't see too many of our neighbors doing the same.  We know Logan isn't a "family" neighborhood, so to speak (i.e. not too many families with children), but there were certainly enough kids out that evening to keep us busy.  When I was growing up, trick-or-treating was one of the things I looked forward to the most every year, and a big reason for that is virtually every house in our neighborhood was giving away candy.  It's a shame that so many houses, by all appearances, weren't participating this year.

Regardless, we hope everyone had a safe and happy Halloween.  Now, it's time to spend the next two months being overrun with Christmas songs, decorations and highly inappropriate gift items.  Rejoice!

Oh, there's plenty of family in Logan, that's why so few people were giving away candy.

Steve, can you clarify? Not certain what you meant by the "family" comment.

Among gay people, "family" is a slang term for gay people.

Mr. Other Upper NW said...

OK, wasn't aware of that. Still not certain why that precludes one from giving away candy to the children in the neighborhood...?
