At the time, I lived in a gated community that was gung ho about Halloween. Not only did each house give away candy, there were homes that went all out, creating haunted houses that you could go into before getting your candy.
The costume I remember most was when I went as a Jack-in-a-Box. Cumbersome since it had wiring that shaped the box around my body, but I had so much fun it did not matter. I wish I had pictures to show you.
I still miss trick or treating. I really do.
My favorite memory came from three years ago. Our village conducted a house decorating contest that culminated on the day the kids trick or treated. I was so into it that we actually won 2nd place. It was awesome. My mother dressed as a witch and I went as the demon she summoned. I created a scary table and a walkway that led to the treats.
The kids had so much fun. I loved giving out the candy and when I spotted teens I'd pass them some bookmarks featuring my books too. Yeah, yeah, shamelessly plugging my work. Why not?
It was really a Halloween to remember.
