Years ago I used to really enjoy Halloween. I guess I still do, just in a different way now. I suppose the main reason I don’t enjoy All Hallow’s Eve like I used to is because of all the trick-or-treaters who have few if any manners. I would take the time to go to the store and spend my money on candy and I would give said candy out to the kids and only a handful of them would actually say, “Thank you”. Call me old-fashioned, but if someone gives you something, you’re supposed to express your gratitude for it.
These days I would rather lock the front door, keep the porch light off and enjoy watching some scary movies and eat the candy myself. I guess I’m just a grumpy old man these days.
I do plan on delivering candy to some of the young neighborhood kids we’ve known for a while, but the run-of-the-mill trick-or-treaters are out of luck this year.
