I am sending out a jeers to all the parents who take their kids
trick-or-treating at the mall. When did we become so afraid of our
neighbors? Do you really think people want to hurt your kids? That is
ridiculous. If someone has taken the time to decorate their house and carve
pumpkins, trust me, they just want to give your kids candy and celebrate
Halloween. When I was little we made our own costumes and ran around the
neighborhood with a pillowcase in hand and makeup on our faces. It was
awesome! I have wonderful memories of my childhood during Halloween. Don't
you want that for your kids? I can't imagine it being as magical and
special at the mall. So please, please don't ruin your kids holiday because
you have some hang up about trick-or-treating in your own backyard.
Childhood is a time of wonder and excitement. Don't you remember? Enjoy
this time with your kids, because it will be gone before you know it.
