Halloween is over for another year!  It's sad to see it end, it is one of the most enjoyable times of the year.  It's the only time of the year that people swarm the neighborhoods looking for free candy.  One kid actually turned down the candy and wanted change for Unicef.  Even after I went into the house for some change I had laying on the nightstand, I offered him a piece of candy for the road, he said no.  He was also Trick-or-Treating alone, poor kid, I hope he spends at least one more year looking for the candy, it seems like you grow up so fast, and miss out on many of the kid things.  It's nice to see kids doing a community service, but it's times like Halloween that kids should be kids, and adults get to be kids again too!
