Halloween is the time of year when tricks and treats are better than Christmas cheer.
Costumes and candy, witches with poison apples, and mommies drinking fruity snapple.
We all gather in groups to walk the neighborhood. If the light is on we may get a treat, however if the light is off their house gets T.P.
Once our candied treasure has been collected, we return home for mom and dad to check that all is protected.
When we get the all clear, we dive in for a sugary rush only to find half the loot has gone to our elders.
Mom and dad pulled a fast one, taking all the chocolate every last one.
We smile and say that's okay for we still have enough sugar to keep us wired for days.
Happy Halloween!!! (c)By: Amanda K. Miller
